Press conference by Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC, on the data transfers between the EU and the United States

Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC in charge of Home Affairs, gave a press conference on the actions that need to be taken to restore trust in data flows between the EU and the U.S., following deep concerns about revelations of large-scale U.S. intelligence collection programmes have had a negative impact on the transatlantic relationship.
The Commission's response today takes the form of
  1. a strategy paper (a Communication) on transatlantic data flows setting out the challenges and risks following the revelations of U.S. intelligence collection programmes, as well as the steps that need to be taken to address these concerns;
  2. an analysis of the functioning of 'Safe Harbour' which regulates data transfers for commercial purposes between the EU and U.S.; and
  3. a report on the findings of the EU-US Working on Data Protection which was set up in July 2013.
 In addition, the EC is also presenting its review of the existing agreements on Passenger Name Records (PNR) and the Terrorist Finance Tracking Programme (TFTP) regulating data exchanges in these sectors for law enforcement purposes.
