Life After Privacy Shield: The Present and Future of Cross-Border Data Transfer

November 4, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm

On July 16, 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) issued its long-awaited judgment in the far reaching Schrems II case which revamped the rules on global data privacy.  This significant regulatory mandate layered on top of ongoing Brexit negotiations (not to mention a global pandemic) has made the thorniest of business climates even more so. So, what does life look like for the hundreds of corporate legal departments and law firms grappling with how to respond? As a follow up to our previous webinar on this topic , we wanted to look at what the practical reality has been for the legions of attorneys attempting to navigate this labyrinth. Please join us for a focused discussion where we will discuss:

Schrems II:  First Safe Harbor and Now Privacy Shield

  • Will onward data transfer to the United States from Britain or the European Union remain a possibility?
  • The European Court (ECJ) determined Privacy Shield to be invalid due to an intelligence agency’s access to the internet pipe as it enters the US.  Will all future attempts to move data from the EU require a review of the receiving countries intelligence policies?
  • Is there a future where the agreement may find new life?
  • At the recent Code Blue 2020 Conference, what were the take-aways in regard to data transfer?
  • What will fines look like should you be found to be in violation of the ruling?
  • Five take-aways to make sure that your business is in compliance with the Court’s ruling

Brexit: A Departure Without a Goodbye?

  • What does the future of privacy look like in a post-Brexit world if there is no deal?
  • Will there be any further extensions?
  • What will be the challenges of doing business between the EU and UK if there is a no deal Brexit?
  • What complications should we anticipate in regard to data transfer between the UK and the EU, post-Brexit?
