Learn more about how to effectively deploy pseudonymization for the international transfer of data.
Our fast-evolving data economy has given rise to a number of intricate challenges surrounding the individual right to privacy and data protection; however, in recent years, the challenges pertaining to international data transfers, which support trillions of dollars in business every year, have become particularly complex.
In November 2020, the European Data Protection Board (EDPD) released its Recommendations outlining the key steps that organizations need to take in order to conduct lawful international data transfers that meet the EU level of protection for personal data. This created huge new challenges as international data flows are essential for organizations of all sizes and across all industries.
Data pseudonymization is one of the supplementary measures that the EDPB’s Recommendations has highlighted as being legally effective for international data transfers. As a result, pseudonymization has come to the forefront of privacy and data protection discussions as a viable technical measure which, when deployed effectively, can enable organizations to continue conducting lawful transfers of personal data out of the EEA and also provide a number of commercial benefits.
For any organization, transitioning to a new era of working with international data transfers is no easy task; in fact, many organizations may even be questioning if they can achieve any of this at all. However, by following some practical guidance from legal and technical experts, it is possible to deploy effective pseudonymization and feel confident that you can rely on it to support continued international data transfers.
