On July 16, the Court of Justice of the European Union decided the fate of standard contractual clauses and potentially all EU data transfer mechanisms when it issued its ruling in Data Protection Commissioner v Facebook Ireland Limited, Maximillian Schrems. The decision could have far-reaching implications for global data flows, trade, and the powers and responsibilities of all EU data protection authorities. In this LinkedIn Live, we examine the CJEU decision with two individuals at the center of the case. IAPP Research Director and former Privacy Shield Director at the U.S. Department of Commerce Caitlin Fennessy, CIPP/US, moderates this discussion with Irish Data Protection Commissioner Helen Dixon, who initiated the case, and DLA Piper Partner Andrew Serwin, CIPP/A, CIPP/C, CIPP/E, CIPP/G, CIPP/US, CIPM, CIPT, who served as the DPC’s expert on U.S. law.
