EU Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality Věra Jourová said she will pull the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield agreement if the U.S. does not adhere to its terms, Bloomberg Technology reports. “If there is a significant change, we will suspend” the accord, Jourová said. “I will not hesitate to do it. There’s too much at stake.” Jourová hopes Shield will continue as planned, but U.S. President Donald Trump’s unpredictability has alarmed European regulators. The justice commissioner said she is seeking “reconfirmation and reassurances” when she visits Washington at the end of March. U.S. agencies continue to voice their commitment to Shield. “We must build on the hard work that many of you have done in supporting Privacy Shield,” said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross while addressing the Department of Commerce.
