This webinar will help you understand the EU data transfer regime and the significant differences within the EU member states in relation to the way in which data transfers are permitted from the EU to other countries.
The EU laws on data sharing and data transfer were drafted in an era when data moved slowly and in small quantities. The current “everywhere to everywhere” movement of data means that it is increasingly difficult for international businesses to run their affairs whilst complying with EU laws on data transfers. Corporate governance, outsourcing, cloud computing and social media all raise massive data protection and data transfer concerns, and the increase in regulatory investigations and fines mean that multinationals must comply with EU data transfer laws or risk investigations and fines.
