Reviewing Your GDPR Compliance Program
Many companies spent considerable time and resources in the run up to May 2018 on adapting their systems and processes toward GDPR compliance.
Four years later, were all these changes necessary? Where should controllers have gone further from the outset? And what should change given the abundant post-2018 guidance and enforcement from DPAs?
This panel will examine how data protection professionals are adapting to the GDPR's changing compliance requirements.
GDPR: 4 Years On
Four years on from the entry into force of the GDPR and the privacy landscape is still as complex as ever. The past 12 months have continued to be wrought with action and a heightened sense of privacy awareness. Developments in the Schrems II case and the privacy implications of the Coronavirus have highlighted a new level of compliance considerations for organisations to navigate. Now that the regulation has been in full force for four years, what’s changed and what do organisations need to know?
In this session, we’ll share the top lessons learned in this new era of privacy, including enforcement and data breach insight, and thoughts about the future of privacy. We will also discuss the major developments that organisations should be aware of and how they can be actively preparing for them.
Key Takeaways include:
Understand the main GDPR-related privacy trends of the past year and how organisations have managed these developments
A look ahead to the implications of on-going privacy developments involving the GDPR
GDPR Four Years On: Reviewing the Most Significant Enforcement Decisions
The flood of GDPR fines anticipated by the media arguably never materialised—but four years on from the GDPR's effective date, enforcement is ramping up.
From Luxembourg's €746 million fine against Amazon to Ireland's €225 million WhatsApp action, 2021-2022 has been a bumper year for GDPR penalties.
In this session we will consider what we can learn from recent GDPR enforcement trends.
International Data Transfers: The Biggest GDPR Compliance Challenge
Schrems II invalidated Privacy Shield, and it also revealed the extent to which US national security law is incompatible with EU fundamental rights. The upcoming Trans Atlantic Data Privacy Framework might provide sme relief for organisations engaged in EU-US data transfers—but for how long?
The question mark over moving to standard contractual clauses (SCCs) has left many companies struggling to find a way to lawfully facilitate transfers to the US. And recent decisions involving Google Analytics and other US services have shown DPAs' willingness to enforce the EU's strict data transfer rules.
This panel will explore whether the situation post-Schrems II is sustainable, and consider the implications for practically every business in the EEA.
What's Wrong With the GDPR? Constructive Criticisms from Privacy Professionals
The GDPR is rightly celebrated as improving data protection rights in many areas. But the law has also been criticised—both by "big tech" lobbyists and dedicated privacy professionals.
Does the GDPR impose a disproportionate burden on small businesses? Is the one-stop-shop preventing any serious enforcement? And could the GPDR's data transfers lead to a "splinternet"?
This session will take a nuanced look at some of the issues data protection professionals experience when implementing the GDPR's requirements.
