GDPR was adopted to serve two main purposes: facilitating the free flow of personal data within the EU and protecting such personal data. In July 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) made a judgement referred to as C-311/18, which is known as ‘Schrems II’. Such judgement had serious implications to the flow of data, especially outside the EEA. The privacy shield that used to apply when data was transferred between the EU and USA could no longer be applied. Furthermore, certain expectations in relation to the Standard Contractual Clauses when data is flowing outside the EEA were clarified by CJEU, and further on by the European Data Protection Board.

The course will also discuss security measures when transferring data outside of the EEA and within the EEA. The course will discuss measures such as pseudonymisation, encryption and anonymisation and how these are effective in protecting personal data.
At the end of this seminar participants should be able to:
The course is ideal for parties controlling or processing data, especially those which transfer data outside the EEA as part of the day-to-day business. The course is also ideal for Data Protection Officers wishing to enhance their knowledge in this area.
