Top European Court Strikes Down US-EU 'Safe Harbour' - What Canadian Businesses Need to Know

  • About this program:
  • On October 6, 2015, the Court of Justice of the European Union ("CJEU") declared that the US-EU Safe Harbour framework is invalid in the highly anticipated case of Schrems v. Data Protection Commissioner. The decision is effective immediately, with far-reaching and widespread implications for entities with multinational data flows, and requires that affected organizations swiftly assess alternative approaches to data transfers.
    Join us for a live webinar as we discuss the implications of the Schrems decision on your business. In light of the changes now required for the thousands of entities who relied on Safe Harbour, do your practices need to change? Are your old options and alternatives still valid? Join our expert panel to learn more on the implications of the decision and the hurdles associated with implementing alternative structures for data transfers. Please visit our CyberLex blog for more information.

    Join Barry Sookman, Charles Morgan, Dan Glover and Kirsten Thompson of McCarthy Tétrault, as they give you practical advice on how to navigate the implications of the CJEU's decision.
