20-03-2016

On Thursday, 28th April, 2016, from 13h30 to 17h15, Len Hawkes will chair a half-day conference
on Data Privacy:
 The General Data Protection Directive & Safe Harbor - Where are we now?
 
A key plank of the Juncker Commission's 'Digital Single Market' initiative, initially due for delivery by end 2015, is reform of EU Data Protection legislation. Last October's 'Schrems' Judgment, on EU-US Safe Harbor, seemed to have pushed the reform package 'offcourse'. However, December saw the EU Parliament and Council agree a text for the General Data Protection Regulation. Clarification of the newly announced 'Privacy Shield', for EU-US data flows, arrived in early March. This conference reviews the current state of play and asks - Where are we now - sailing into calmer waters?
 
Sessions:
  • The GDPR
  • EU-US 'Privacy Shield'
  • Debate on Compliance Issues

Panel of Speakers:
 
  • Chris Sherwood, Allegro Group
  • Isabelle Vereecken, CPVP-CBPL Belgian Privacy Commission
  • Mark Blunden, Boyes Turner
  • Raffaele Zallone, Studio Legale Zallone
