What does the SCHREMS-II decision mean for whistleblowing systems?
In July 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) declared the EU-US Privacy Shield invalid.
In this ruling, the CJEU acknowledged that the Privacy Shield does not provide enough guarantees to keep data transferred between the EU and the US safe from US surveillance programs. Presently, due to the Cloud Act, US government agencies can ask US courts to issue a warrant forcing whistleblowing providers to hand over their clients’ data.
