Webinar on Schrems II: The Practical Implications for Businesses

In one of the year’s most hotly anticipated decisions regarding data protection, on Thursday, July 16, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) will make a final ruling in Data Protection Commissioner v. Facebook Ireland Limited, Maximillian Schrems. After the dust settles on Thursday’s decision, we invite you to join us on Monday, July 20, for an interactive discussion to identify practical next steps for your business. Members of Hunton’s Global Privacy & Cybersecurity team will explore the new landscape around standard contractual clauses and other data transfer mechanisms, and the steps you should take now to prepare for compliance. During our virtual event, key partners from Hunton’s US, UK and EU offices will provide practical guidance to help you navigate your data transfer obligations.  Hunton invites you to share questions in advance, and will do our best to answer them during our discussion. 

  • Implications of Schrems II for data transfers outside of the United Kingdom/European Economic Area
