In July 2020, the European Court of Justice ruled in the long-awaited Schrems II case. The outcome of the ruling is of great importance to all EU organizations that use international cloud and hosting providers which directly or indirectly receive or transfer personal data to countries outside the EU/EEA.
In November 2020, the European Data Protection Board published a draft of a number of new recommendations on the transfer of personal data to third countries. The long-awaited new recommendations include among other things, concrete examples of effective “supplementary measures”.
In ComplyCloud, we follow Schrems II closely and regularly post news here on this home page, so you can keep updated.
The European Commission has adopted new standard contractual clauses (SCC’s) that is required to be applied by all organizations from the 27th of September 2021. This means that your organization can no longer use the old SCC’s. Are you a customer at ComplyCloud, the new SCC’s will soon be integrated in the software. Read our latest whitepaper on the new standard contractual clauses. Find it below.
With ComplyCloud it is now possible to make a Transfer Impact Assessment (TIA) in only 30 minutes and automatically receive the legal documentation and assessment to act on. Read more about our Transfer Impact Assessments here.
Schrems II and the latest guidelines from the European Data Protection Board make it a requirement that all companies and organizations carry out a transfer impact assessment for each supplier, partner, or group company, where personal data is transferred to third countries outside the EU and the EEA. Such an analysis is called a Transfer Impact Assessment (TIA).
It is not an easy task, and as almost all companies use international processors with a presence in third countries, all organizations face this challenge.
