If the way businesses have been sharing and protecting data between the US and our friends across the pond is now illegal and there's no text or usable guidance on what to do now, that puts a lot of companies in a really difficult place where they may not be able to make any decisions. I'm glad all of our business is solely within the US and we don't have to interact with foreign entities and potentially share, or not share, data.

It is a very uncomfortable time.  No one I talked to is expecting a magical solution.  They're expecting the Privacy Shield to be challenged and for the process to take longer than advertised because it's not just a business issue, it's a political issue.

Re: Limbo
Political issues always take more time that business decisions.

Another angle for frustration is the fact that the EU court, as a body, can invalidate an agreement, but that the replacement agreement has to come from each of the EU member nations. It's going to be a long time before all the dust settles.
