In the latest episode of DLA Piper’s Beyond the Curve podcast, Victoria Lee, co-chair of the firm’s global Technology sector, talks with Andrew Serwin, US chair and global co-chair of DLA Piper’s Cybersecurity and Data Protection, Privacy and Security practices, about the recent Schrems II judgment and its implications for data transfer regulation.
Beyond the Curve aims to help businesses and communities adapt to the uncertainties they have faced in recent months and plan for the future. In this episode, Lee and Serwin discuss the questions raised by Schrems II and the invalidation of the EU-US Privacy Shield, including whether standard contractual clauses, or SCCs, sufficiently ensure the protection of transferred personal data. They also consider the evolution of data privacy from a sector-specific legal issue impacting individual industries, such as financial services and healthcare, to a matter that is now top of mind for companies across all fields.
