9. Data protection laws and international data transfers – How can legal counsels deal with the complexities of a global digital world?

This session will be recorded and made available in the replay café

Data protection laws continue to be enacted globally at a steady pace, with 60% of the world population expected to be covered by these laws in 2023. This creates new compliance obligations and potential regulatory enforcement for companies in a growing number of countries. At the same time, the EU Court of Justice Schrems II Decision has caused disruptions to cross border data flows from the EU by setting a higher bar for international data transfers on which companies rely for an increasing number of their daily activities. How can legal counsels deal with this “regulatory avalanche” and growing level of complexity to enable compliant collection, use and transfer of personal data across their organisations? This panel will bring together legal counsels and privacy experts who will share their practical experience on how they have been making this work for their company, what best in class data privacy practices look like and how they are successfully mitigating the risks of non-compliance in our global digital world.
