Schrems II - Implications for Data Transfers

About this event

The court of Justice of the European Union recently delivered its highly anticipated judgement on the case C-311/18, Data Protection Commissioner v Facebook Ireland & Schrems, concerning the validity of both the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses and the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield framework, as mechanisms for transferring personal data to third countries.

The Schrems II case determined the invalidation of Privacy Shield when transferring data under the EU General Data Protection Regulation. In this webinar, 9ine’s in-house Data Protection Solicitor, Heidi-Anne O’Neill will discuss the following: 

  • What are the Schrems judgements about?
  • What is the impact of the Schrems II decision for the Privacy Shield and Standard Contractual Clauses?
  • What steps schools should consider taking now
  • What next for international transfers?
