Understanding the EU-U.S. Framework for Transatlantic Exchanges of Personal Data for Commercial Purposes (Privacy Shield, Safe Harbor, and more)

This white paper provides a background on why the International Safe Harbor Privacy Principles were ruled invalid by the European Court of Justice in 2015 and why the EU-U.S Privacy Shield Framework was introduced.

Privacy Shield allows US companies, or EU companies working with US companies, to meet this requirement of the GDPR.

  • How, since 2016, the Privacy EU-U.S Privacy Shield is adequate to enable data transfers from the EU to the U.S under EU law

  • How the EU-U.S Privacy shield is built on four pillars and seven Privacy Shield Principles.

  • Practical guidelines and implications for EU citizens and necessary considerations

  • Practical guidelines for U.S companies who receive consumer data from EU entities or partners

  • Why end-to-end-encryption of sensitive or personal data should be a key consideration in order to prevent unauthorized and unwanted access

Find out how HSMs can provide a secure encryption solution, preventing unauthorized access to a company’s sensitive data and protecting data even after a compromise.
