Morning Money: Will the new transatlantic "Privacy Shield" be effective at defending your data?
Discussions surrounding 'Privacy Shield' are ongoing - it's a new transatlantic agreement that will allow data to flow freely between the EU and US, whilst also ensuring that data is properly protected. Companies have waited months for the deal, after its predecessor, the US Safe Harbor Agreement, was struck down by European courts in October 2015. But so far only Microsoft, CA Technologies and Workday have signed up. Joe Aldridge looks into the new agreement by speaking with Peter Church, a Counsel and data privacy expert at law firm Linklaters.
