WEBINAR – Conversation on Cross-Atlantic Data Transfer Challenges in a Post ‘Schrems II’ Era

November 9 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST

Program brought to you by EACC Netherlands.

The Dutch Data Protection Authority (Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens) and Microsoft to explore the impact of the Court of Justice of the European Union’s Decision on businesses of all sizes and what companies can do if they are held responsible for their government’s actions.

The Court’s “Schrems II” decision in 2020 reaches almost every company that touches EU residents ́ personal data. It was followed nearly a year later by the long awaited revised Standard Contractual Clauses and the European Data Protection Board’s final recommendations on additional measures entities can put in place in order to lawfully conduct business across the Atlantic.

This data protection matter is not confined to just the privacy team; corporate leadership needs to understand the issues and make informed choices.

Among the topics for discussion are:
– Actions companies can take;
– Role of the regulators;
– Consequences for continuing to transfer EU personal data to the US;
– Practicalities of holding private enterprise responsible for government actions;
– Whether storing data only in the EU solves the issues raised in the Schrems II decision;
– Whether data localization is practical in a technological world eager to conduct trade.
