In our globalised world, where cloud computing and outsourcing are part of our daily business routine, personal data move around the world in high-speed. The Schrems II preliminary ruling of the CJEU reminds us that, despite the globalisation of technology, different countries provide different levels of data protection. This can clash with the protections provided by the GDPR, which are backed by the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU, requiring personal data to be adequately protected also when transferred to a third country. Schrems II specifically addresses the adequacy of protection when data are transferred to the USA. But how about transfers to other ‘third countries’ such as China, India, Russia etc.? And not to mention the UK, as of 2021. What can be done to mitigate the impact of this ruling on today’s transfer instruments and practises? And what are the best ways to manage the related regulatory risks?
Lokke Moerel will clarify the (potential) scope of this landmark ruling, address (potential) risks and discuss the technical and organisational steps multinationals can take to mitigate the impact of the ruling. She will take questions from the audience.
