Cloud Sovereignty and Schrems II

Juan Caballero

Baden-Württemberg's privacy regulator Stefan Brink told POLITICO that legal changes alone would not be enough to keep data flowing. Companies could store their data in Europe, or they could reach for a wildcard: encrypting everything that crosses the Atlantic.
"I generally agree that data exports to third countries may no longer be based on Standard Contractual Clauses. However, the ECJ shows the possibility of continuing such exports with additional guarantees. This could include an effective encryption of data stored in the U.S., which the U.S. service provider cannot break," Brink said.
