The Schrems II Aftermath: A Deep Dive into SCCs

This timely webinar was brought to you by IAPP featuring Eduardo Ustaran, Global co-head of the Hogan Lovells Privacy and Cybersecurity practice.

In the "Schrems II" decision, the Court of Justice of the European Union reaffirmed the validity of standard contractual clauses as a data transfer mechanism under the EU General Data Protection Regulation, including to the U.S.

At the same time, the court required data exporters in the EU, as well as data importers in the U.S. and other countries, to conduct mini-adequacy assessments of the ability of a data importer to comply with the SCC under its domestic law and adduce "additional safeguards," "supplementary measures"and "effective mechanisms" where necessary. Despite having signed tens or even hundreds of thousands of SCCs, few companies have thus far given thorough attention to what these contracts say or mean. In this session, some of the leading global experts on transborder data flows provided a deep dive into SCCs and answered your questions about the path forward for this all-important transfer mechanism.

Co-speaker: Renzo Marchini (Privacy, Security and Information, Fieldfisher)
