25 Jul Civil Liberties Committee Warns Privacy Shield Inadequacies Must Be Resolved
Last Monday, head of Civil Liberties Committee Claude Moraes, said they found inefficiencies in the Privacy Shield which must be resolved as soon as possible.
In April this year, officials reviewed the Privacy Shield and found that it subverted privacy measures stipulated by the U.S. By early July, American NGOs were vocal about their reservations on the law, saying that it could gravely erode citizen’s information.
Compared to regulations in the European law, it can also be seen that European citizens’ right under the Privacy Shield are not equal to those secured by the European regulations.
Moraes obliged the European data security authorities and to delay Privacy Shield implementation, stating that the deficiencies should be addressed right away if the courts intend it to relegate its purpose and endure the test of time.
