Trading Internationally? The New EU Data Protection SCCs Explained
Businesses trading internationally are challenged with legitimising their data transfers. Schrems 2.0 created uncertainty. Brexit has compounded that.
The main safeguard used, the Standard Contract Clauses, have now been updated by the EU Commission to take into account the modern commercial world, GDPR changes and Schrems 2.0 risks with guidance that you must comply with if your business trades internationally. We'll be discussing what you will need to do and by when, with practical guidance:
- What does this mean, what do we do now, what are our deadlines and risks?
- Can we still use the old SCCs?
- Must we redo all of our international contracts? How and when do we use the new SCCs?
- What else must we do?
- Must we assess the risks of foreign countries? What are the issues with the US? What about the UK?
- Is this a good time to look at other safeguards like Binding Corporate Rules?
Our global privacy expert will identify the practical challenges that need to be considered to justify transfers internationally. You will need a plan: every business will need to take some action.
