Event description:

REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED!


This seminar will discuss the current legal framework and guidance for transfers of personal data out of the EU, and give an overview of the key changes to EU data protection law under the General Data Protection Regulation.


Data protection is an increasingly important consideration for both traditional and high-tech industries. The last six months have seen two important developments in EU data protection law: (1) the annulment of the European Commission’s decision regarding transfers of personal data from Europe to the United States under the Safe Harbour, followed by negotiations on a new mechanism to replace Safe Harbour; and (2) near-final agreement on the text of the General Data Protection Regulation, which is set to be adopted this year.

Tim Hickman advises on all aspects of UK and EU privacy and data protection law, from general compliance issues (such as implementing privacy policies and consent forms) to advice on more specialized issues (such as managing data breaches, structuring cross-border data transfers, performing data enrichment and complying with the 'right to be forgotten'). Clients benefit from Tim's in-depth experience in applying UK and EU data protection laws in the context of current technological trends, such as 'big data', the 'internet of things', cloud computing and machine-to-machine communications.
