US-UK-EU Cross-Border Data Transfers After Brexit
Wednesday, November 6, 2019
1:00 p.m. EST
The Palace of Westminster has been the site of several weeks of arcane, confusing, suspenseful, and occasionally humorous political machinations, as the United Kingdom prepares for its likely departure from the European Union on October 31… or not, depending on who you talk to and at what time of day. If, indeed, the UK exits the EU, what will be the effect on cross-border data transfers?
Members of The Sedona Conference Working Groups 6 (International Electronic Information Management, Discovery and Disclosure) and 11 (Data Security and Privacy Liability) have been following Brexit developments closely, and while it is impossible to predict what will happen between now and October 31, we have scheduled a webinar for Wednesday, November 6, to bring you up to speed on events and their impact on day-to-day cross-border data transfers; data protection regulation and enforcement; and cross-border collection, processing, and transfer of data to meet litigation and regulatory requirements. We have assembled a panel of experienced U.S., UK, and EU practitioners representing a variety of viewpoints who will clarify the issues, map out a path forward, and answer your questions (time permitting).
