On Wednesday, October 14, 2015, Norton Rose Fulbright attorneys Marcus Evans, Jay Modrall and Boris Segalis will lead a conference call to discuss the implications of the Schrems case, which invalidated the EU-US Safe Harbor Decision.
On October 6, the European Court of Justice declared invalid the European Commission’s decision creating the so-called Safe Harbor Framework, which thousands of companies have relied on for fifteen years to transfer personal information of European Union citizens to the United States.
The court’s decision was effective immediately, creating legal uncertainty about continuing and past transfers of data and what steps the Commission, Member State authorities, and US authorities will take.
In this program, our lawyers from Brussels, London and the US will discuss the European Court’s decision, alternatives available to companies that previously relied on the Safe Harbor and the authorities’ likely next steps.
10:00 am – 10:45 am PDT
