EU judges’ recent invalidation of the bloc’s data-transfer agreement with the US has meant uncertainty and risk for tech giants and thousands of other companies as well as urgent questions for nations around the world.

This special report “Making the Cut” is a collection of key stories published by MLex in recent weeks making sense of this muddle, highlighting the areas of greatest regulatory risk for businesses and looking ahead, where possible, to spot emerging fixes.

The report reflects three broad moving parts of the topic: the EU court’s decision and immediate effects on Facebook and other companies; the scramble by the US and EU to work out what to do about replacing the binned agreement and making SCCs more robust; and the concerns and responses by other affected countries around the world — including the UK, Japan and Australia.
