19 Oct EU Commissioner Says Improvements Can Still Be Made with US Privacy Deal
The European Union (EU) said that it believes that there is still room for improvements on the current US privacy deal.
Justice Commissioner Vera Jourova mentioned last Wednesday that the EU-US Privacy Shield can still be enhanced by finding ways to better implement regulations. This will help guarantee EU citizens’ privacy protection wherever their information can be found.
The Privacy Shield deal was enacted last year following issues involving U.S. intelligence departments that meddled with global information carried by U.S. businesses. A high EU court nullified the first deal citing insufficient provisions.
EU states that it expects authorities to conduct improved monitoring on U.S. companies, further enhance compliance, and uphold awareness for EU citizens. They believe authorities must take part in helping EU citizens guard their privacy rights.
