ISRAEL NOW SAYS DATA TRANSFERS TO US CAN’T RELY ON PRIVACY SHIELD

On 1 October, Law 360 reported that Israel’s Privacy Protection Authority (PPA) has now said that data transfers from Israel to the US cannot rely on the Privacy Shield, which a European court ruled invalid in July.  It says that since Israel’s regulation allow transfers to Europe and any jurisdiction “Europe deems adequate,” it has followed the EU lead in outlawing Privacy Shield transfers.  This decision follows a similar one in Switzerland.
