IDPF – Israeli Data-Protection Professionals Forum – deep dive into:
How Will Israeli Companies Cope with the new EU Data Transfer Rules?
Thursday, December 24, 14:00 (iL- GMT+2)
Following the Schrems2 CJEU decision, the EU is about to amend the data transfer rules, and create significant challenges.
Join us for an IDPF session about the forthcoming new standard contractual clauses, alongside challenging EDPB recommendations, and their implications on Israeli companies.
This session will be conducted in Hebrew.
14:00- 14:10 – Introduction.
14:10 – 14:40 – 5 important takeaways from the new SCCs.
On November 12, 2020, the EU Commission published a set of new standard contractual clauses (SCCs) for the transfer of personal data to third countries pursuant to the GDPR. The new SCCs are open for public consultation until December 10, 2020, and the final SCCs are expected to be adopted in early 2021. The new SCCs are more comprehensive than the current version and introduce a modular approach to support various data transfer types. The new SCCs also aim to address some of the new requirements arising from the CJEU Schrems2 decision which invalidated the EU-US Privacy Shield. We will share important aspects and the way to cope with them.
14:40 – 15:10 – The EDPB recommendations – are they a show stopper for GDPR data transfer?
On November 10, 2020, the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) published a set of recommendations on essential guarantees for surveillance measures. On the same day, the EDPB published draft recommendations on supplemental transfer tools. The public consultation over the draft recommendations has ended on November 30, 2020. They offer a three-layered approach, requiring companies to deploy strict technical, operational, and contractual measures to support GDPR-based data transfer. Will these recommendations de-facto bar data transfers to the US and other countries? We will explain the challenges and offer courses of action.1
