EU Data Transfers Post-Schrems II: What are the Viable Options Going Forward?

    View Speakers / Event

    A recording of the webinar is available for download.

    The European Union’s highest court has ruled that the EU-US Privacy Shield data transfer mechanism is invalid. The court also ruled that another much-used transfer mechanism - the EU Standard Contractual Clauses (also known as Model Clauses) – is valid in principle but not always in practice, depending on the circumstances of the data transfers in question. Businesses relying on (or switching to) the SCCs will need to carefully consider whether they are able to commit to all of the boilerplate clauses included in the Model Clauses.

    Please join us on July 30, 2020 for a Roundtable Discussion including our top EU and US data protection experts: Rosa Barcelo (Brussels), Ann LaFrance (US), Mareike Lucht (Germany), Catherine Muyl (France) and Francesca Fellowes (UK) who will discuss the Schrems II judgment and its implications, including:

    • What the judgment says and does not say
    • What alternatives are available
    • Challenges ahead for use of the SCCs and potentially BCRs
    • Practical steps to take now

    The session will be moderated by our DC-based privacy pundit, Lauren Kitces.

    This program is pending 1.0 hour of CLE in AZ, CA, NJ and NY. If you need another jurisdiction, please email Robin Hallagan, Legal Training Manager.
