The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Analyzed at WeLiveSecurity from ESET

WeLiveSecurity "from the brains at ESET" has a useful posting
about the recent EU-U.S. Privacy Shield agreement
at EU-US Privacy Shield launches: Key points to this agreement.

Whether that agreement will hold water over the long term is questionable.

Also important, as WeLiveSecurity writes is that as "an ICO survey from 2015 revealed, 85% of respondents are worried about “how their personal information is passed or sold to other organizations”. It is a big deal."

Consider that fact when looking at the recently announced Facebook intent to harvest WhatsApp data. That kind of privacy and security abuse should be stopped cold in its tracks. It is indeed "a big deal".
