PETs can play a vital role in EU-US data transfers

26/02/2024 | CEPS

In an op-ed, Centre for European Policy Studies, Researcher Camille Ford wrote that Privacy-Enhancing Technologies (PETs) could play a crucial role in mitigating the risks of another protracted legal dispute over the lawfulness of the EU-US Data Privacy Framework (DPF)

According to Ford, the EU and the US should work towards refining their regulatory guidance on PETs to enhance accountable privacy practices for cross-border data transfers. While PETs alone may not resolve the long-standing legal frictions, they can strengthen trust-building initiatives and foster convergence on data protection practices on both sides of the Atlantic before the CJEU strikes again.
