Katie Davis Global Data Protection Expert Planning for Data Protection Compliance is Essential When Expanding Overseas

Data protection and regulations regarding an individual's right to data privacy are issues you can't ignore when doing business overseas. The EU's data protection regulations are stricter than those in the US, and other countries are modeling their policies on those of the EU. The EU Directive of 1995 states that companies operating in the EU may not send personal data into countries outside of the European Economic Area unless there is a guarantee that the data will receive equivalent levels of protection in the receiving country.

You may assume that the US, with its high level of data sophistication, would pass the EU’s "adequate protection" test, but it does not. The US is not as a country automatically deemed able to offer adequate protection for the transfer of data from the EU.

Safe Harbor Registration May Be Necessary to Operate in EU Countries

If your company operates in one or more European Union countries, you more than likely want to pass data, and probably personal data such as payroll information, from the EU back to corporate headquarters. So how do you accomplish that without violating EU regulations and risking penalties or fines? Safe Harbor is one of the options.

The EU and the US Department of Commerce created Safe Harbor certification so that eligible US companies could meet the EU data protection
