The Schrems II ruling invalidated the EU-US Privateness Protect for worldwide information transfers involving EU private information. The courtroom ruling prescribes that EU information can now not be lawfully processed utilizing US-operated (or some other non-EU operated) clouds, SaaS or outsourcing suppliers with out “further safeguards” that forestall the information from being topic to surveillance by the US (or different non-EU nations).

This makes a “regulatory arbitrage” strategy impracticable, with an absence of entry to information halting enterprise operations inexorably.
Anna Buchta, Head of Coverage & Session on the EDPS, defined throughout the webinar: “From the viewpoint of the regulators, we at EDPS and others have stated many occasions already given the elemental constitutional significance of this ruling, there must be a earlier than and after Schrems II. There must be penalties and that, sadly, could imply that sure transfers won’t be able to proceed with the obtainable authorized devices with out “further safeguards” to make sure equal safety as beneath the GDPR. We have to realise that Schrems II has to have an precise affect in follow and I am positive that that is additionally on this path that the forthcoming steerage from the European regulators will go.”
Romain Robert, Senior lawyer at NYOB, famous that: “Safety measures and encryption ought to already be there earlier than any switch as a result of it is an obligation beneath the GDPR and Article 32 so it’s an obligation for safety. Pseudonymisation as properly can be talked about a variety of occasions within the GDPR however earlier than any transfers. Pseudonymisation just isn’t the answer to transfers. It ought to be achieved earlier than any switch in a selected state of affairs like if you wish to justify, for instance, the change of objective or if you wish to consider the chance on the DPIAs.”
Mark Webber, Managing Companion on the Silicon Valley workplace of the legislation agency Fieldfisher, raised a possible concern in regards to the potential ramifications of Schrems II for limiting technological innovation, He stated: “I, for one, am very severe about privateness, however I do not need to see this result in extra localisation, much less use of the web, and fewer use of applied sciences which can change our worlds. The web is a superb sport changer for all, and I feel we have all bought a job in ensuring we are able to proceed to make use of these applied sciences and work with these companies for the great of everyone.”
With the COVID-19 pandemic, many corporations are relying much more closely on cloud and SaaS providers for well timed insights about companion and buyer ecosystems.
