DataGuidance are pleased to present Data Transfers – Essential Equivalence, a free webinar in association with Sidley Austin LLP.
Under the Schrems judgment, the question of whether essential equivalence exists between the data protection laws of the U.S. and EU will be part of future determinations not only by the Commission but also by the Irish Data Protection Commission, as well as by every other DPA in other complaints proceedings.
Through our experienced panel, attendees will receive a seasoned, thorough and thoughtful analysis of this brave new world and its implications for international data transfers. A leading U.S. interlocutor with the European Union will explore the judgment with a leading expert on European data protection law and with the lawyer who represented Max Schrems before the Court of Justice.
Speakers include –
- Herwig C. H. Hofmann, Professor of European and Transnational Public Law, University of Luxembourg
- Peter Hustinx, Former European Data Protection Supervisor
- Cameron F. Kerry, Former General Counsel, U.S. Department of Commerce; Senior Counsel, Sidley
What you’ll take away:
- Knowing the key points by which U.S. and EU data protection will be compared
- Understanding the role of “privacy on the ground” in the U.S.-EU debate in practical compliance with the rules in force
- Considering how DPAs can compare the law enforcement and intelligence practices of the U.S. and the member states
