EU - US Privacy
A major agreement governing the transfer of EU citizens' data to the United States has been struck down by the European Court of Justice (ECJ).
The EU-US Privacy Shield let companies sign up to higher privacy standards, before transferring data to the US.
But a privacy advocate challenged the agreement, arguing that US national security laws did not protect EU citizens from government snooping.
Max Schrems, the Austrian behind the case, called it a win for privacy.
The EU-US Privacy Shield system "underpins transatlantic digital trade" for more than 5,300 companies. About 65% of them are small-medium enterprises (SMEs) or start-ups, according to University College London's European Institute.
Affected companies will now have to sign "standard contractual clauses": non-negotiable legal contracts drawn up by Europe, which are used in other countries besides the US.
In order to comply with GDPR call recording consent must not simply be assumed , but must give a clear explination of why the call is being recorded. One of this six condition must be fulfilled for call recording:
Participants have given consent to be recorded for one or more specific purposes
Recording is necessary to fulfil a contract to which the participant in the call is a party
Recording is necessary for fulfilling a legal obligation to which the recorder is subject
Recording is necessary to protect the vital interests of one or more participants
Recording is in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the recorder
Recording is in the legitimate interests of the recorder, unless those interests are overridden by the interests of the participants in the call which require protection of personal data.

Under the GDPR, video surveillance is considered a high-risk operation requiring particular attention, especially if public areas with a large amount of foot traffic are monitored. While proponents stress the ability to deter vandalism and identify criminals, the same technology can be used to ‘identify’ passers-by and compromise their privacy, without them being aware of the fact.
Generally, the legal grounds for video surveillance will be based on legitimate interests of the company (protection of property, prevention of offenses, etc.).
You are required to perform a data privacy impact assessment (DPIA) with help of your data protection officer for every surveillance system you have set up. In it, you should list the specific processing activities you want to perform and the reasons why video monitoring is necessary in the first place.
