Cross-border data flows refers to the transmission of information for online communication, tracking global supply chains, sharing research and providing cross-border services. In Europe, any transfer of personal data intended for processing after transfer to a third country are subject to the rules set out in the GDPR, notably the principles under Article 5 i.e., lawfulness, fairness, and transparency, purpose limitation, data minimisation, accuracy, storage limitation, integrity and confidentiality and accountability. Last year’s European Court of Justice decision, known as ‘Schrems II’, concluded that the US Privacy Shield no longer met the fundamental principles of data protection underlying the GDPR.
The evening’s panel explored the issues and concerns arising from this ruling, including the European Data Protection Board’s document on the transfer of personal data to support companies in managing relations with overseas suppliers and customers as well as the European Data Protection Supervisor’s strategic document to ensure transparent and compliant management of international data transfers by European organisations.
