Peter Swire will be a panelist during the session “Brexit and Data Adequacy: UK, EU and U.S. Perspectives” and moderate the session “CLOUD Act Executive Agreements and the Globalization of Criminal Evidence” at this conference sponsored by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).
“Brexit and Data Adequacy: UK, EU and U.S. Perspectives”
As the UK leaves the EU, it will be “establishing its own international transfer regime” for cross-border data flows. The UK will create new capabilities for assessing the adequacy of privacy protections in countries. Meanwhile, the EU will assess the adequacy of protection in the UK.
What you’ll take away:
- Understand the EU data adequacy model and what this means for future post-Brexit data transfers from the UK.
- Understand key global trends and features of data privacy and what this means for data flows through adequacy arrangements.
“CLOUD Act Executive Agreements and the Globalization of Criminal Evidence”
With cloud computing, law enforcement investigations increasingly seek evidence that is held in a different country. This globalization of criminal evidence has prompted major legislative change and proposals. In 2019, the U.S. and UK announced the first executive agreement under the CLOUD Act, and the European Union is moving ahead with its proposed E-Evidence regulation and directive.
These new measures seek to improve government access for legitimate requests but also must safeguard privacy and other individual rights and prevent unauthorized government surveillance.
What you’ll take away:
- Understand how technology and market changes are transforming how police around the globe are facing unprecedented challenges as they seek lawful access to electronic evidence.
- Learn how the U.S. (CLOUD Act), Europe (E-Evidence), and other nations are changing their laws and practices to assist law enforcement access while preserving privacy and human rights.
- Gain insight into the practical challenges for companies that face often-conflicting legal obligations. Companies seek to maintain interoperability across borders for their customers and services while facing increasing calls for data localization by nations seeking to assure local police access to evidence.
