On Wednesday 8 September, CERRE Tech, Media, Telecom & Mobility Director, Lara Natale, will moderate the roundtable “End of the Privacy Shield: what consequences and what solutions?” at the International Cybersecurity Forum (FIC 2021).
In a ruling of 16 July 2020, the European Court of Justice has invalidated the Privacy Shield, a system widely used by both US and European companies to transfer European data to the US. The Court found that European data did not enjoy equivalent protection in the United States. Panelists François-Xavier Vincent (Oodrive), Armand Heslot (CNIL), and Friederike Scholz (REDUCEO GMBH) will discuss with Lara what are the operational consequences for companies? Will the “standard contractual clauses”, also weakened by the CJEU’s decision, make it possible to maintain these transfers? What other solutions exist? At the strategic level, what is the impact on transatlantic economic relations? Will this new economic war on data contribute to the relocation of data in Europe and accelerate the development of a European digital industry?
