Privacy Shield invalidation by CJEU – US and European Cross-examination – Context and consequences

On July 12, 2020 the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has invalidated the adequacy decision between the USA and the EU regarding their data protection systems which was allowing to transfer European personal data to the USA, after registration of the US companies on the Privacy Shield register. What is the context of this decision? What consequence needs to be taken into account?
