Event summary

What began over two years ago mainly as a “battle of the forms” to update terms of data protection agreements for GDPR has now exploded into a complex discussion of how to address European personal data transfers in light of the Schrems II decision. With Privacy Shield now being invalidated and the EU standard contractual clauses being called into question, companies now have an uncertain path forward for transferring personal data from Europe to the United States.

This event will explore potential strategies, what happens with Privacy Shield and whether an amendment of current mechanisms are needed in order to limit GDPR risk. In light of the uncertainty, there will be a discussion on how such cross-border transfers can be approached.
