Melise’s Safe Harbor Client Alert

Now that many of you have heard that the Safe Harbor data transfer framework has been invalidated, you may be asking how it applies to your company. Not only does the invalidation of Safe Harbor apply to future data transfers between the European Union and the United States, it also invalidates all past data transfers. Clients must think about what data they have received in the past, and for their data currently in storage, clients need to think about what to do with it. Simply because you are not receiving data at the moment, does not mean you are not affected by the Safe Harbor ruling. Sequel can help clients assess exactly what to do with the data in their possession to avoid any lingering legal penalties.
