Transfer Impact Assessment Webinar - McDermott Will & Emery

Transfer Impact Assessment Webinar


Today’s global economy thrives on data. Organizations rely increasingly on data to manage a global workforce, monitor product placement, stay abreast of supply chain issues and more. The analysis of consumer data allows companies insight into customer preference and to adapt accordingly. International trade cannot take place without a vast amount of data being transferred across the globe.

It is therefore vita that data can flow freely across borders. But the barriers are rising. Compliant data transfer is achievable – though businesses need to be wary of the many pitfalls.

In this webinar, Romain Perray and David Saunders will help navigate the regulatory labyrinth, including an in-depth look at the Schrems decision and an assessment of the impact of the DPA decisions. From what constitutes a cross-border transfer to making sense of the differing rules across various jurisdictions, this webinar will make sure participants have all the data they need to handle data safely

Please note that this is paid training. A participation fee of 875€ / $930 will be required to attend.

  • Reviewing the scope of the new US-EU privacy framework agreement
