The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield is fully operational, as the U.S. Department of Commerce has opened registration for U.S. companies, the European Commission announced in a press release. The EC has also published a Privacy Shield guide, the release states. Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker and EU Justice Commissioner Věra Jourová discuss the merits of the Shield in an op-ed for Euractiv. “Simply put, the Privacy Shield is a 21st century solution to strengthen the protection of personal data that moves between the United States and the European Union,” they write. “We are confident that the Privacy Shield will open a new era for transatlantic privacy and commerce, delivering concrete and practical results for our citizens and companies.” Editor’s Note: Looking to learn more about the Privacy Shield?
