The decision of the Court of Justice of the European Union in the Schrems case has roiled the world of data protection professionals. In the absence of a valid Safe Harbor, what are the thousands of Safe Harborites and their countless business partners to do in order to validate data transfers across the pond? Rush to adopt model clauses or binding corporate rules? Rely on consent or other derogations? Sit and wait for a new deal? Localise all data processing operations? Should companies rush to adopt interim measures or wait to seek permanent solutions? Join a panel of leading experts to discuss strategy and tactics for multinationals and SMEs.

What you’ll take away:

  • Brainstorm the immediate response to the annulment of Safe Harbor
  • Weigh the costs and benefits of different transfer mechanisms
  • Engage with leading experts on strategies and tactics for managing cross-border data flows
