U.S. President Joe Biden signed an executive order Friday that would limitthe ability of American national security agencies to access people’s personal information as part of a transatlantic data sharing agreement with the European Union.
The decree follows lengthy negotiations between the United States and the EU after the bloc’s highest court ruled in 2020 that Washington did not sufficiently protect Europe’s data when it was transferred across the Atlantic. The judges’ concerns focused on how U.S. surveillance programs did not have proper measures for European citizens to address how the government collected their data.
