After Privacy Shield's Death: What Is Still Possible?

  • TYPE: Keynote DATE: Wednesday, October 21, 2020 TIME: 16:00-16:20

With the July 2020 decision of the Court of Justice of the European Union, the „Privacy Shield“ called framework that allowed personal information to be transferred between the EUC und the US; had been invalidated with immediate effect. The only remaining justification to keep on exchanging such information have been the „Standard Contractual Clauses“ (SCC, although they do not fully replace the Privacy Shield. Therefore, the questions now are:

  • Where do Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) come into the game?
  • Can SCC fully replace the Privacy Shield?
  • Are there Alternatives?
  • Do I need to perform an immediate Risk Assessment?   

This Keynote session with Dr. Karsten Kinast, LL.M, and KuppingerCole´s CEO Berthold Kerl will be a combination of an initial interview and a q+a part, where you directly can ask your questions.
