Now that the EU-US Data Privacy Framework (DPF) has been adopted, organisations and industry practitioners are looking towards implementation and what comes next. After the CJEU invalidated the Privacy Shield agreement three years ago, companies turned to alternative transfer mechanisms such as standard contractual clauses and binding corporate rules.
