The European Commission published its report of the third-annual review of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield agreement. The report states improvements have been made since last year’s review, such as the appointment of a Privacy Shield ombudsman and improvement in enforcement actions brought by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. The European Commission recommends continued improvement to the re-certification process and for guidance to be developed for handling human resource data. "With around 5,000 participating companies, the Privacy Shield has become a success story," EU Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality Věra Jourová said. "We will continue the digital diplomacy dialogue with our U.S. counterparts to make the Shield stronger."
