On July 16, 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), the supreme court of the European Union on matters involving European Union law, issued its long anticipated decision in the "Schrems II" case (case C-311/18) and invalidated the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework (Privacy Shield). The CJEU found the Privacy Shield failed to provide "effective administrative and judicial redress for the EU data subjects whose personal data are being transferred." The CJEU also concluded that the use of standard contractual clauses (SCCs) remains a valid mechanism for the transfer of personal data to processors outside of the EU but cautioned that companies must police their SCCs to assure adequate protections for EU data subjects.
