As EU data protection reform “continues its tortuous course in Brussels’ corridors of power, privacy pros in the real world are doing their best to cope with the current uncertainty,” writes Eduardo Ustaran, CIPP/E, in his latest post for Privacy Perspectives. For those doing business in Europe, a major challenge “is how to overcome the restrictions affecting international data transfers in a cost-effective, sustainable and effective manner,” and though there are many paths to follow, “the right one is not always obvious.” Ustaran notes that although “choosing the most suitable method to legitimize global transfers requires careful consideration, there are strong signs that suggest adopting and implementing binding corporate rules (BCRs) may be a wise move.” He lays out five specific reasons why. Editor’s Note: Join Nymity, GE and Johnson Controls for a free IAPP web conference on BCR implementation and monitoring today at 1 p.m. EDT. Did you miss it? The recording will be live by Monday.
