'Schrems II': A Year On

Original Broadcast Date: July 2021

One year ago, the Court of Justice of the European Union’s “Schrems II” decision shook the privacy profession and global data transfers by invalidating the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and calling into question broader data transfers. A year hence, the tremors continue. The decision spawned new standard contractual clauses and a host of detailed guidance on supplementary measures to ensure equivalent protection and mitigate government surveillance. And yet, the phrase “data transfer compliance” now seems quixotic to many. Uncertainty reigns and data localization is on the rise as Privacy Shield negotiations continue. In this LinkedIn Live, IAPP Research Director Caitlin Fennessy, CIPP/US, discusses with NOYB Honorary Director Max Schrems and Hogan Lovells Partner Eduardo Ustaran, CIPP/E, the impacts of the decision to date and those to come.
