SIIA Statement on UK US Transatlantic Data Flows Agreement

The following statement can be attributed to Chris Mohr, President, Software & Information Industry Association:

The Software & Information Industry Association welcomes the announcement of the new agreement between the United Kingdom and the United States to further open up transatlantic data flows. While the UK is no longer a member of the EU, the agreement paves the way for data transfers between the UK and the U.S. to be governed by the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework, and removes the need to rely on separate agreements, eliminates the red tape for business and restores data flows to the U.S. while protecting the rights of individuals.

We are pleased to see the two countries continuing to collaborate as part of the Atlantic Declaration announced in June to cooperate and work together on economic, technological, commercial and trade relations.
