With the end of the Brexit transition period fast approaching, as the UK enters a new era in charge of its own data protection regime, and with the Government's ambitious aspirations for a high tech, data-driven post-Brexit economy, in our recent webinar we looked at:
- The impact of data flows on free trade agreements, including trends towards more protectionist data localisation measures
- Personal data transfer mechanisms following the CJEU's judgment in Schrems II, including mechanisms for transferring data from the EEA to the UK at the end of the transition period
- Key data risks for UK based controllers at the end of the transition period
- The Information Commissioner's Office position on the World stage and its approach to data protection and enforcement at the end of the transition period
- Key takeaways from the Government's National Data Strategy
- The view from across the pond: what's the direction of travel for data protection in the US? How can US businesses continue to process European personal data?
The panel speakers for the webinar comprised Travers Smith Consultant Nicky Morgan, Head of Commercial, IP & Technology Dan Reavill, Head of EU and Trade Policy at techUK Sabina Ciofu, Partner at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP Jeannie S. Rhee and member of IBM’s government and regulatory affairs team Richard Ward.
