International Regulatory Trends

January 12, 2017
Daily Journal's Cyber Boot Camp

Tim Toohey's session will focus on the seismic shifts in international privacy and data security regulations that will require all US companies, not just multinationals, to consider whether and how they collect, process and share information regarding European data subjects and other individuals from around the globe. The panelists, representing viewpoints from the US, Europe, and beyond, will discuss, among other things:

  • Cross-border data transfers in the aftermath of the Schrems decision of the European Court of Justice invalidating the Safe Harbor Framework, what to expect if self-certifying for the new “Privacy Shield,” and legal challenges to existing transfer mechanisms like Standard Contractual Clauses and Binding Corporate Rules;
  • The new European Union General Data Protection Regulation set to take effect in May 2018, and why it matters to all US companies;
  • The rapidly evolving privacy and data security regulatory landscape in Asia;
  • What it means to do business in Latin America in 2017 from a privacy and data security perspective
