The recently announced Transatlantic Data Privacy Framework will foster data flows between the US and the EU, addressing the concerns raised by the Schrems II. decision. The US-made an unprecedented commitment to strengthen the privacy protection applicable to US signals intelligence activities within the new framework. New safeguards will be implemented to protect citizens' rights while advancing cross-border data flows. The next step is to translate this framework agreement into legal documents that will be put into practice on both sides of the Atlantic. But what does this mean for data privacy in practice? What are the major challenges, and what can we expect in the long run? We spoke to J. Scott Marcus, Senior Fellow at the EU's economic think tank, Bruegel, about the history and future of transatlantic data flows.  What are the implications of the newly announced transatlantic data privacy framework? What are the challenges, and what does the future of compliant data sharing look like? We talked to Scott Marcus, an expert in digital policy, regulation, and US surveillance from Bruegel, the EU's economic think tank. Scott shared valuable insights with us on surveillance and why it's so challenging to regulate. Listen to this Data Democratization Podcast episode to learn about:
  • the history of transatlantic data-sharing challenges,
  • how to make the transatlantic data privacy framework work,
  • what are the major barriers, and what needs to be fixed to make sure the framework does what is expected?
We will be keeping an eye on the developments regarding the framework. Meanwhile, learn how safe cross-border data sharing is already possible with synthetic data!
