LinkedIn Live: ‘What Do New EU Data Transfer Rules Mean for Privacy Shield?’

Published: June 2021

On June 4, the European Commission released new standard contractual clauses. On June 21, the European Data Protection Board published its final recommendations on supplementary measures for international data transfers. Both present a complex new set of requirements for companies transferring data to countries not deemed “adequate” by the EU and create sometimes insurmountable hurdles for those transfers. How do these new rules affect the Privacy Shield enhancement negotiation? And what do they suggest about EU expectations concerning its protections and data flows to the United States in the interim? Join IAPP Research Director Caitlin Fennessy, CIPP/US, for a conversation on these critical issues with U.S. Department of Commerce Deputy Assistant Secretary for Services Christopher Hoff, CIPP/E, CIPP/US, CIPM, charged with overseeing Privacy Shield negotiations, and Alex Joel, CIPP/G, CIPP/US, Scholar-in-Residence at American University and former Chief of ODNI’s Office of Civil Liberties, Privacy and Transparency.
