Overview (Program Summary)
The EU-UK Brexit deal approved on December 30 brought some welcome clarity to the treatment of personal data now that UK GDPR is a wholly separate legal regime from EU GDPR. The deal also provides for free trade of goods between EU and the UK.
In this session we will explore the practical implications of:
* The Schrems II decision and invalidation of the U.S. Privacy Shield program and related guidance and interpretation
* The "grace period" of up to six months allowing transfers of personal data from the EU/EEA to UK
* EU approval of new Standard Contract Clauses and the need for "additional measures" following the Schrems II ruling
* Overseas' organizations' need for separate Article 27 representatives for EU/EEA and UK
* Data subject rights and breach response under UK GDPR and GDPR. Is there a risk of double enforcement?
Presented by Tara Cho, Partner, Womble Bond Dickinson (US), Malcolm Dowden, Legal Director, Womble Bond Dickinson (UK) and Andy Kimble, Partner, Womble Bond Dickinson (UK) and an in-house panelist.
