In recent months, we’ve seen a constant stream of consequential decisions and developments in European data protection. For Data Protection Officers (DPOs), it’s not always easy to keep up with developments and do deeper analysis.
Our regular DPO Brunch helps you stay on top of the latest developments. Launched for DPOs, these webinars are also open to data privacy enthusiasts in other roles. Together, we analyse current developments and exciting aspects in the field of data protection with leading experts.
Our topic in February 2023:
Transatlantic Data Transfers: Expectations and the Reality
Here are the main takeaways from our speakers:
Volker Wodianka: “The EU-US data privacy framework is just a piece of the puzzle. Businesses should put compliance on more than one pillar, looking further into Standard contractual clauses and additional security measures”.
Michael E. Nitardy: “Governmental action to implement President Biden’s Executive Order needs to continue and US companies have to buy in again to the sentiment of self-certification, thus inviting scrutiny and showing they take data privacy seriously.”
Isabelle Roccia: “A failure of approval of the adequacy decision or its successful challenge before the Court of Justice would raise the question of the robustness of the adequacy mechanism itself.”
To sum up the main takeaway from our insightful panel discussion: complexity and legal uncertainty surrounding transatlantic data flows are here to stay, so companies should mitigate risks by looking into different mechanisms to legitimise their data transfers abroad.
That said, JENTIS enables businesses to minimise legal uncertainty and remain agile in this complex field by placing control over the data flow in their own hands.
