Revisiting the Safeguarding of Information Assets – Part XII

Robert Davis Robert Davis Profile: Robert Davis

Complicating laws and regulations alignment are trans-border communication requirements regarding information protection and confidentiality. The potentially costly task of obtaining data delivery consent from all affected parties may be the only enabling trans-border information flow baseline. Contractually, equivalent protection usually can only be furnished when the sender enters into a written agreement with the trans-border recipient, whereby the recipient affirmatively agrees to abide by the higher information processing mandates of the sender or recipient; such as the E.U.–U.S. (Department of Commerce) Safe Harbor Agreement regarding the E.U. Privacy Directive on Data Protection.
