The Administration’s attacks on allies, perhaps former allies and other in the area of trade and sanctions has not occurred in vacuum. Many other countries and groups such as the EU have retaliated with counter-sanctions. One area that the current administration does not seem to have considered too well is EU data privacy and data protection. In this episode of Life with GDPR we explore this issue in the age of trade policy as conflict. Some of the highlights are:
- Did the comments by US Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross about GDPR actually embolden GDPR enforcement?
- Is there a trade war between the US and EU over data?
- Is there a way to reconcile the divergences in approaches to data privacy and data protection between the EU and US? and
- Will the Privacy Shield framework survive the Schrems court challenge? Will it be renewed in September, suspended in September or even revoked in September?
What will be the impact of US trade sanctions against the EU in the area of data privacy/data protection? Jonathan Armstrong and Tom Fox consider on Life with GDPR.Click to tweet
