Will the death of Privacy Shield be the awakening of European tech?

Ever since Snowden revealed the extent to which US intelligence agencies can so easily access our data, people have become mistrustful of US companies. A survey by GMX last year, for example, revealed that 73% of British internet users mistrust US companies over data protection concerns, which is more than double that of a similar survey in 2015 which showed that only 35% had such concerns. 8% of UK internet users have even left a US online service due to privacy concerns within the last twelve months, while 11% are planning to do so.

While this may work for data that serves no current purpose, simply locking away the data greatly reduces its value, especially if the risks of loss of business or customer trust greatly outweigh the benefits of securing data.
