US-UK Data Sharing Agreement Might Not Soothe Law Firms’ Cloud Concerns

October 22, 2019, Legaltech News

Trisha Anderson spoke with Legaltech News about a bilateral data access agreement, a new mechanism of the CLOUD Act and its effect on law firms. A year after the CLOUD Act, the first data-sharing agreement is most relevant to U.K. law enforcement agencies having access to the vast data held by U.S.-based tech companies, says Ms. Anderson. She adds, “The most significant impact is the access it affords to U.S.-based data providers. But it doesn’t expand access beyond [that] which was already available. What this agreement does is it provides a privacy framework that imposes certain restrictions on the circumstances for which the U.K. government can access that data and the matter with which they access and maintain that data once it is obtained.”
