Tantleff Quoted on Privacy Shield Updates

01 June 2016 The Wall Street Journal News
Partner Aaron Tantleff was quoted on the recent milestones in the U.S.-EU Privacy Shield data transfer agreement, which has been facing criticism and questioning over whether it could stand up to a legal challenge. In The Wall Street Journal’s Morning Risk Report article, “Hope Fading for Privacy Shield Agreement,” Tantleff was quoted saying, “While there was great support for the passage of Privacy Shield, given the impact it has on some of the largest global economies, the reality is that the ability for Privacy Shield to pass legal scrutiny in the current climate is all but impossible.”

Tantleff also shared his insights with SC Magazine and was quoted in the article, “European Data Protection Supervisor Calls Privacy Shield Ineffective,” on June 1, 2016. Tantleff said that because data is global and virtual and becoming more difficult to localize, the Privacy Shield is critical. He said, “Facing the growing uncertainty of the model contract clauses, organizations need a stable, valid method to transfer the data of EU citizens across the Atlantic.”
