EU Issues New Standard Contractual Clauses for Data Transfers

In response to the uncertainty caused by the European Court of Justice questioning whether Standard Contractual Clauses (last amended in 2004) provide sufficient data protections in the “Schrems II” opinion, the European Commission recently adopted new SCCs. The new SCCs should increase the confidence of American businesses in the GDPR-compliant transfer of personal data of EU residents to servers in the U.S., provided those businesses know when and how to use them. Lathrop GPM data privacy and security attorneys Michael R. Cohen and Tedrick A. Housh, III discussed these changes more thoroughly here.
