Businesses and other entities that need to make transatlantic cross-border data transfers have waited with bated breath over the past year for a new agreement, after the Court of Justice of the European Union (“CJEU”) invalidated a European Union (“E.U.”) agreement with the United States that made such data transfers legally possible.
