Cross-Border Data Transfers in the Real World – Privacy Shield, Now What?

Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz

Personal data of individuals – consumers and employees – is in constant motion across international borders. Nonetheless, existing privacy laws purport to prohibit organizations in many countries from transferring data to another jurisdiction in the absence of adherence to various legal frameworks or contractual mechanisms designed to enhance the protection of personal data. Those legal frameworks suffered a blow last year when the European Court of Justice struck down the 15 year old Safe Harbor Framework. A year later, the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework has been approved as a replacement, and many companies have begun to certify, but the new Framework remains subject to potential legal challenge. Other European data transfer mechanisms – standard contractual clauses and Binding Corporate Rules – are also subject to legal challenge. And other jurisdictions around the globe in South America, Asia and elsewhere, are imposing restrictions on the transfer or personal data and in some cases even calling for data localization. Yet, data continues to flow in real-time.

Landmark Supreme Court Cases Webinars: Brown v. Board of Education

Alta High School

The slave Dred Scott sued for his freedom in court because his former master had taken him to live where slavery had been prohibited by Congress through the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 and the Missouri Compromise of 1820. Chief Justice Roger Taney, writing the opinion of the Court, argued that Scott could not sue because he was not and could never be a citizen of the United States. Taney based this conclusion on an assertion that Founding-era Americans did not mean to include African slaves or their descendants as part of “We the people.” Taney also concluded that Congress had no authority to prohibit slavery in the territories because it violated the constitutional right to hold property in slaves. As Abraham Lincoln later observed, this Supreme Court decision raised doubts whether slavery could be banned by law anywhere in the United States — including in states where it was already prohibited.
