U.S. Department of Commerce Releases White Paper to Assist Organizations in Conducting Schrems II Assessments

The U.S. Department of Commerce published a white paper to assist organizations in conducting independent analyses of data transfers in light of the July 16, 2020 Data Protection Commissioner v. Facebook Ireland and Maximillian Schrems, Case C-311/18 (Schrems II) decision by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) and, ultimately, in making the case for transferring personal data to the United States using EU-approved transfer mechanisms.

The white paper outlines privacy safeguards relating to government access to data provided by U.S. law, focusing on those that are relevant to the issues that appear to have concerned the CJEU in Schrems II.
