Data Détente: Exploring Challenges and Opportunities in Trans-Atlantic Data Flows

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This panel session will evaluate the challenges and opportunities of the upcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and discuss the future of transatlantic data flows, given the European Court of Justice's overturn of the U.S.-E.U. Safe Harbor agreement. The purpose of the panel will be to go beyond debating whether or not there should be regulations: by including legal, technological, and human rights perspectives, the goal is to discuss potential solutions, or grounds for consensus, on trans-­Atlantic data transfers.
The panel will open with a brief summary from each of the panelists of what s/he considers to be the biggest opportunity and the biggest challenge presented by the final version of the Regulation as EU member states approach the two -year implementation phase. Then panelists will field questions about how the GDPR affects issues like consent, data portability, the right to erasure, and data localization. Panelists will be encouraged to give specific examples of how the GDPR and possibly the Privacy Shield will affect people and companies dealing with data transfers to and from Europe and talk about developments in technology that are intended to both deal with and innovate around data privacy.
