Some European tech companies are worried that the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield's legal challenges could prove problematic in the long run, PCWorld reports. These companies are "still concerned that Privacy Shield will not hold up under court scrutiny, and they will find themselves in the same scenario as they were in October 2015, when the Safe Harbor agreement was struck down," said Intralinks' Deema Freij, CIPP/E. Businesses are specifically worried about an additional period of data transfer uncertainty should courts strike down the Shield, as well as perceived weak stances on potential U.S. surveillance, the report states. European support is paramount to Shield success, said 2014 IAPP Vanguard Award winner David Hoffman of Intel. However,"some of the same arguments about Safe Harbor and Privacy Shield can be made about alternative transfer methods," he added.
