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.

Morning Money: The triple threat facing the UK travel industry
Thousands of British families with holidays booked in Turkey are scrambling to cancel their trips following the attempted coup. Travel agents say they have been deluged by calls from worried tourists wanting to cancel after seeing shocking footage emerge from the holiday hotspot. Specialist Turkish travel agents are ruing the 'huge financial impact' that the attempted coup has had on their business over the weekend - and of course, this comes hot on the heels of the Nice atrocity. It's a third blow for the travel industry, already set to be profoundly affected by the Brexit vote. Geoffrey Breeze, Executive Director at the World Travel and Tourism Council joined the Morning Money team to discuss further.
