On 8 September, Latham & Watkins LLP published an article, with attached Powerpoint presentation, about a new resource to identify considerations for assessing SCC (standard contractual clauses) and BCR (binding corporate rules) data transfers in Europe after the European Court blocked use of the Privacy Shield mechanism – the Data Transfer Risk Assessment.  The firm says that the framework can be used to assess transfers to any country outside the EEA, and includes illustrative examples that examine certain issues under US law. Latham is expecting further guidance from the European Data Protection Board on the requirements for this assessment and the additional safeguards that may be appropriate.
