Join us on Tuesday, February 16 for our monthly chapter meeting with a special guest speaker:  

Security Implications: Schrems II, CCPA, and Brexit
by K Royal

We will be hosting the meeting virtually
Conference Call Information:

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.
