Recently, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) issued its judgment in the closely watched Schrems case, declaring the “Safe Harbor” for transfer of personal data from the EU to the US invalid. In a one-two punch, the court also expressly conferred on national data protection authorities (DPAs) the right to independently investigate claims regarding transfer of EU citizens’ data to jurisdictions such as the U.S. that are not deemed to provide “adequate” security in compliance with the EU Privacy Directive 95/46/EC (EU Directive).
