Workshop on International data exports – EU-US Data transfers

Thursday, May 7, 2015

In light of an increasingly interconnected and intertwined world, many businesses and governments provide their services across national borders. This involves the exchange of data pertaining to global customers or employees, which in turn may pose thorny crossborder data-transfer issues, due to a fragmented and sometimes conflicting regulatory landscape. 

In addition, the EU and its Member States are seeking adequate responses to the recent terror incidents that stroke France, Belgium and Denmark. Relying e.g. on data retention measures and flight passenger name records (PNR) raises a number of questions of mass surveillance and the fundamental right to data protection. 

It is against this backdrop, that the European Data Protection Law Review – EDPL is hosting a one-day hands-on workshop on the law and policy of cross-border data transfers. Experts from the industry, academia and legal practice will offer their insight and share their views on these topical issues. The “Workshop on International data exports – EU-US Data transfers” takes place in Brussels on the 7th of May 2015.
