In an Op-Ed for the Chatham House, Christopher Smart writes about the need for a trans-Atlantic charter for data security and mobility. As cross-border data flows continue to rapidly grow, developing policies to protect privacy and security are challenging. Add the different ideologies between the U.S. and the EU, and the need for a charter seems crucial for future business. “This makes more determined efforts by U.S. and European policymakers to agree [on] basic principles that will guide the usage and protection of personal and commercial data all the more important,” Smart writes. “While common regulations or even greater alignment among regulators seem out of reach, a 'Transatlantic Charter for Data Security and Mobility’ would provide a set of principles for more specific rules amid political landscapes and technological developments that are evolving rapidly.”
