Influence of US developments on the EU

One of the biggest challenges that US companies come across right now is that on the one hand they need to comply with US laws on government access and anti-terrorism in particular, and on the other hand with the strict European Data Protection Laws protecting EU citizens.


EU privacy laws versus US cloud providers

The basic idea of European data privacy law is that citizens should have control over their data and that everybody who touches this data should comply in writing with all relevant regulations. The conduct of US cloud companies, however, often does not conform to EU regulations.


Collapse of the Privacy Shield

The Privacy Shield is an arrangement that allows US companies to self-certify their compliance with European Laws. But the Privacy Shield is under threat and if it collapses, there will be significant consequences for both US cloud providers and European buyers of US cloud solutions.



The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new, Europe-wide law that will go into effect on May 25th 2018 after a two-year grace period meant to provide companies with enough time to actually comply with the GDPR. But what happens after the 25th of May, and what does this mean for you?


3 things one should stop doing

When the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on the 25th of May 2018, there are three things that you should definitely stop doing: 1) stop collecting data just because, 2) don’t give everyone access to all data, 3) don’t assume third-party IT vendors are secure.
