Webinar: "CJEU Invalidates Safe Harbor - What Now?"


Hear a panel of experts discuss the October 6, 2015 decision by the Court of Justice of the European Union that invalidated the 2000/520 European Commission Decision establishing the US/EU Safe Harbor. The decision will have an immediate effect on any organization that relies on Safe Harbor protections, leaving them exposed to claims that its data transfers are unlawful.

The Court held that national data protection authorities within the Union have the power to investigate any claim that personal data that is subject to European data protection laws is being transferred to a third country that may fail to provide adequate protection for the data.

In this webinar, we will discuss alternatives that companies may consider to combat disruptions that the invalidation of Safe Harbors may cause, including:

  • Model Clauses
  • Binding Corporate Rules
  • Anonymization of Personal Data
  • Consent
  • Eventual Replacements of the Safe Harbors (“Safe Harbors 2”)
