Pat Clawson, CEO of the Blancco Technology Group, responding to the news that the European Commission have come to agreement on the EU-US Privacy Shield as a replacement for the invalidated Safe Harbour pact.
Pat Clawson, CEO of the Blancco Technology Group:
“Coming off the heels of the EU’s recent ratification of the General Data Protection Regulation, the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield brings us one step further in ensuring both individual and company data is protected. Trans-Atlantic data flow is critical to companies on both sides of the ocean, and this new frame work is a move in the right direction toward addressing data privacy concerns of all involved parties. Companies will need to break down the internal departmental silos that exist inside their organization to ensure all stakeholders—marketing, sales, legal, finance, IT, compliance, technology, C-level and board level executives—are working together to properly manage data throughout its entire lifecycle.”
