On November 10, 2020, Hunton Andrews Kurth will host a webinar examining the privacy issues that will arise if the UK leaves the EU. The UK’s Brexit transition period ends on December 31, 2020, and it is not clear whether the EU will officially recognize the UK’s data protection regime as “fair”. What does this mean for companies’ plans to update their data transfer mechanisms? Is Adequacy the holy grail that is commonly believed to be? What other points need to be considered? There is still time
Our speakers will discuss the key privacy implications of Brexit for US and EU companies and how companies in the UK are preparing. In particular, we will discuss:
- The UK General Data Protection Regulation and broader legal framework
- The role of the UK Information Commissioner Office after Brexit
- Appropriateness and its likelihood, longevity, and practical implications for transfers
- Determination of the applicable law, the territorial scope and appointment of representatives
- Impact of Brexit on Accountability (DPO, DPIA, ROPA, Announcements, etc.)
