Exploring the implications of the “Schrems II” decision at the Data Privacy Conference USA 2020

17 August 2020

The Data Privacy Conference USA is returning on September 23rd, 2020 and will gather, this time online, US and global data privacy experts, legislators, industry leaders, and civil society to discuss the most topical and timely issues relating Data Privacy in the US.

Among key topics covered by the conference, one session will focus on the numerous implications of the CJEU’s decision on the ‘Schrems II’ case invalidating the EU-US Privacy Shield mechanism, and the work that is already being done to develop a potential enhanced EU-U.S. Privacy framework to comply with the July 16's decision.

We are very pleased to be welcoming James M. Sullivan, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Services, Department of Commerce and Bruno Gencarelli, Head of Unit, International data flows and protection, European Commission, amongst other stakeholders, for a high-level round table discussing what is needed to ensure the long-term stability of transatlantic, and global data flows, at a time where they are deemed vital for the survival of businesses.

The 2nd Annual Data Privacy Conference USA will take place on September 23rd, from 8:30am-4:30pm ET. In addition to the transatlantic debate, the conference will explore what the next four years may hold for Data Privacy in the USA, what is next in the push for a set of federal rules, what has been learnt since the last edition of this conference, particularly in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, and how data, used appropriately, is a powerful tool in the efforts to boost economic growth and improve the health and wellbeing of US citizens.
