Confused about the recent 'Schrems II' decision on data transfers and what this might mean for your business?

On July 16, the Court of Justice of the European Union made its final ruling in Case C-311/18, Data Protection Commissioner v Facebook Ireland & Schrems. The Privacy Shield has been invalidated, the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) remain valid, but the court has put more emphasis on obligations for parties using SSCs and implications for transfers outside the EEA more broadly.

The Clifford Chance Tech Group, together with Clifford Chance Applied Solutions, are delighted to invite you to join us on Thursday 24 September, 1 PM GMT (2 PM CET, 8 AM ET) for a webinar on this important ruling, which will feature top EU and US data protection experts from Clifford Chance.

During this webinar, these experts will be sharing their thoughts on topics and questions including:

  • A recap on the Schrems II ruling by the CJEU and an update on the regulatory guidance to date.
  • What does the ruling mean in practice for companies and organisations?
  • What is the Brexit perspective and how will the outcome of Schrems II affect the UK's adequacy decision?
  • A closer look at the US surveillance and security laws commented on by the CJEU and looking ahead at the EU - US privacy relationship post-Schrems II.

Thursday 24 September | Time: 1PM GMT (2PM CET, 8AM ET), 1 hour duration
