The European Data Protection Supervisor welcomed the Court of Justice of the European Union's ruling in the "Schrems II" case. The EDPS said in a statement the decision "reaffirmed the importance of maintaining a high level of protection of personal data transferred from the European Union to third countries." The European Data Protection Board and France’s data protection authority, the Commission nationale de l'informatique et des libertés, also released statements. The EDPB will “assess the judgment in more detail and provide further clarification for stakeholders and guidance on the use of … transfer of personal data to third countries.” The CNIL will examine the decision with other members of the EDPB. Editor's note: IAPP Editorial Director Jedidiah Bracy, CIPP, reported on the reaction to the ruling in this piece for The Privacy Advisor.
