Schrems II: Practical Considerations from a Legal Process and Technology Perspective

Event Detail
James A. Harvey
October 27, 2020
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Eastern Standard Time

Jim Harvey will speak at this upcoming webinar co-hosted by Alston & Bird, IONIC and TrustArc.

There has been a ton of activity in the wake of the Schrems II decision of the Court of Justice of the European Union. There have been statements from various EU representatives that a new draft of the Standard Contractual Clauses is ready, but other statements indicate that those clauses will not be released until near the end of the year. At the same time, the European Data Protection Board is working on further guidance on “additional appropriate safeguards” as suggested by the Schrems II court, but the timing of that guidance is unclear. Regulators on both sides of the Atlantic have also made various pronouncements, many of which are not consistent with the Schrems II decision, nor sometimes consistent with one another.

While all of this is going on, commerce requires that companies continue to transfer personal data beyond the borders of the EU, to the United States and other countries around the globe. This session will review the legal issues from a practical, real-world perspective and what you should be doing from a technology and compliance perspective to effectively and efficiently address the issues raised by the Schrems II decision.
