16FEB (TUE) 6:30PM Chapter Meeting — EU voids US-EU Safe Harbor with K Royal

Virtual Meeting — Register Here.

On July 16, 2020, the Court of Justice for the European Union published their opinion on Case C-311/18 Data Protection Commissioner v Facebook Ireland Limited and Maximillian Schrems (called “Schrems II”). This decision invalidated the EU-US Privacy Shield and provided requirements for data transfer mechanisms. This decision has had far-reaching consequences for US companies doing business in the EU, but also for companies globally. What does this mean for companies and specifically, for security professionals? Will the EU drive global security requirements? And if so, how does it align with the new California laws or with the UK withdrawal from the EU? Join us as we discuss global developments in privacy and put them in context of managing a forward-looking security program.

We are joining the monthly chapter meeting of our sister chapter, ISSA DC, for this meeting. For this reason, we are meeting on a Tuesday evening and are starting at 6:30pm. The support of our DC sister chapter is most appreciated!
