Partner Aaron Tantleff was quoted in a CIO
article, "Privacy Shield review: Prepare for the worst
," about the European Commission's second annual review of the Privacy Shield data-sharing agreement.
Tantleff said he advises clients to have a backup plan, to adopt another legal basis for data transfers, such as binding corporate rules (BCRs) or model clauses. "I'm advising everyone that's relying on Privacy Shield to make alternative arrangements, to have a backup plan - not because I suspect Privacy Shield is going to be suspended in the next 30 days but because Privacy Shield will be, in the future, modified or suspended at some point," he said.
