Data Protection and the death of the US Privacy Shield

September 16, 2020 / 12:00 – 1:00 pm EST  (Complimentary BABCNE webinar)

The legal and ethical need to protect personally sensitive data is well understood. Equally, the extra-territorial reach of the EU’s GDPR legislation and the trans-Atlantic ‘Privacy Shield’ agreement have been part of the recent landscape for doing business. However, COVID notwithstanding, this year is upsetting the status quo.

In this podcast Chaucer invites you to our international panel discussion on the pressures of operating trans-Atlantic business under the auspices of GDPR (with fines of 4% of global revenue), the implications of the Schrems II decision (July 16, 2020) striking down the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the impending end of the Brexit Transition Period (Dec 31, 2020).’

Strategies for Easing Non-Essential Travel Restrictions at the Canada-US Border" on Wednesday, August 19, 2020, at 4:00 p.m. ET.

The Canada-US border was closed to non-essential travel for thirty days on March 21, 2020. These restrictions have been serially renewed, most recently through August 21, 2020. This has resulted in a great deal of hardship among cross-border families, people with property interest in both countries, important (albeit non-essential) business travelers, and the retail and tourism sectors which rely on cross-border business. 

Despite having been in place for almost five months, there has been little public progress towards describing what a border-opening decision would require. 

This presentation will identify critical issues affected by the current situation, and review available procedures, which might be useful in allowing safe and efficient crossings in the foreseeable future.

The webinar is complimentary but registration is required. We’re looking forward to your participation!
