Five predictions for the EU-U.S. Safe Harbor showdown

Jay Cline | Oct. 28, 2015
Several indicators point toward a compromise outcome.

What should American companies do in the meantime? A few things:

  • Don’t panic and make decisions about where to host data based on the current situation. Events are fluid, so hold tight.
  • Get model contracts in place, but prepare to demonstrate compliance with their provisions in a much more robust way in order to successfully weather DPA investigations prompted by citizen complaints.
  • Prepare for a shorter grace period to implement the GDPR requirements in your European operations, just in case.

And, most importantly, move full-steam ahead bringing your American innovations and can-do attitude to the European market. Our shared future depends on it.
