On July 16, 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union invalidated the adequacy of the protection provided by the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield. The court found that the framework did not comply with data protection requirements that apply when transferring personal data from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States in support of commerce. In this webinar, the speakers will provide an up-to-the-minute briefing on what this decision means for organisations that are certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield. Topics will include:
- what may change for businesses relying on standard contractual clauses (SCCs);
- what to expect with respect to transatlantic data transfers after this decision and a looming Brexit; and
- practical tips for U.S. employers with employees in the European Union and United Kingdom.
