On 16 July, the Court of Justice of the European Union made its final ruling in Case C-311/18, Data Protection Commissioner v Facebook Ireland & Schrems. While Privacy Shield has been completely invalidated, the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) remain valid, but the court has emphasised obligations on the parties to the SCCs and Data Protection Authorities which have the potential to restrict when they can be used.

Join us for a webinar on Thursday, July 30, where our international data privacy group will analyze the judgment and discuss its implications for business and for companies doing business in Asia.
