GDPR and Data Transfers 2.0 - Navigating Through Post-Schrems II Waters

KL Gates Hosted Event
Date: 16 June 2021

It will have taken 11 months from the Schrems II case… On 4 June 2021, the European Commission published at long last its final version of the updated Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC), allowing for the transfers of personal data to third countries not offering an “adequate” level of data protection under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

While providing at long last some foreseeability and legal security to affected stakeholders, the scope of the SCC and its undertakings have vastly increased since the pre-GDPR versions. All companies within a globalized economy, whether relying on non-EU partners to conduct their activities or dealing with companies in the EU or otherwise subject to GDPR, will be potentially affected.

This webinar addresses the following aspects of this once-in-a-generation regulatory tidal wave:

  • How will my company be affected?
  • What is the expected roll-out schedule?
  • What changed since the November 2020 draft?
  • Are the SCC a turn-key solution or would they require additional considerations?
  • What can be negotiated and how?

Speakers include our Data Protection, Privacy, and Security lawyers:

  • Claude-Étienne Armingaud  (France)
  • Dr. Thomas Nietsch (Berlin)
  • Jake Bernstein (Seattle)
  • Cameron Abbott (Melbourne)

The webinar was held in two sessions. The first session is centered around Europe, Asia, and Australia and the second is focused on Europe and the United States.
