The U.S. Department of Justice announced the Data Access Agreement concerning criminal data sharing between the U.K. and the U.S. entered into force Oct. 3. The two countries will share data under "qualifying, lawful orders for electronic data issued by the other country, without fear of running afoul of restrictions on cross-border disclosures." The DOJ added that the agreement brings "more timely and efficient access to electronic data required in fast-moving investigations through the use of orders covered." The agreement is authorized under the Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data Act, a law enacted by U.S. Congress in 2018.
