WEBINAR: Towards a Bridge Over Troubled Water: International Data Transfers between the US, UK and EU

Time: Wednesday 18th May 2022, 12.00–13.30 (EST), 09.00–10.30 (PST), 17.00-18.30 (UK)

Webinar from DeMarco Law, PLLC and Kemp IT Law

In their 2021 Annual Privacy Governance Report, IAPP and EY found that international data transfer (“IDT”) compliance was, by a wide margin, privacy professionals’ biggest concern, with 60% of respondents naming it their top issue.

In this webinar, IDT legal experts from the US and the UK will:

  • explore how we got to where we are today and why things are in such a state of flux;
  • review directions of travel:
    • in the US: other US States are following California in adopting CCPA-like data privacy laws
    • in the UK: the Government is eyeing up what a more liberal data regime could do for a post-Brexit economy
    • in the EU: Brussels is positive about a new Privacy Shield but some EU capitals are taking Schrems II as a cue for a harder line
    • around the world: 70% of countries have now passed data protection laws or have them in draft;
  • offer practical tips on:
    • navigating risks and avoiding pitfalls
    • building a bridge towards business-like, robust IDT compliance

against a backdrop where the best can be the enemy of the good and complete compliance a mirage.
