Practical Data Protection Considerations for Businesses Post-Schrems II

Overview



In one of the year’s most hotly anticipated decisions regarding data protection, on July 16, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) made a final ruling in Data Protection Commissioner v. Facebook Ireland Limited, Maximillian Schrems. After the dust settled on the decision, we hosted an interactive discussion July 20 to identify practical next steps for business. Members of McDermott’s Global Privacy & Cybersecurity team explored the new landscape around standard contractual clauses and other data transfer mechanisms, and the steps you should take now to prepare for compliance. During our virtual event, key partners from McDermott’s US, UK and EU offices provided practical guidance to help navigate data transfer obligations.

Topics included:

  • Implications of Schrems II for data transfers outside of the United Kingdom/European Economic Area
  • Impact of Brexit on data transfers to and from the United Kingdom
  • Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs) and other alternative mechanisms for personal data transfer
