Top European Privacy Official Rejects EU-US "Privacy Shield"

He called for changes in the draft arrangement to permit data transfers to the United States. "Significant improvements are needed," said Giovanni Buttarelli. The Article 29 Working Party, the European Parliament, and a coalition of EU and U.S. consumer organizations have also opposed the data transfer proposal. Citing rampant data breaches in the United States, NGOs have urged strong safeguards for privacy and data protection.
