International data transfers from a GDPR perspective continue to be one of the most discussed subjects in the world of privacy and data protection. The UK’s departure from the European Union and the end of the transition period on the 31st of December 2020, adds a further level of complication. If you are grappling with how to manage the lawful transfer, this training (at the foundations) level will help you to get a better understanding of the fundamentals of cross-border transfers of data at the regional level and some deep diving into the EU-US and other inter-regional transfer of personal data complexities.
During this training, we will not only discuss some underlying reasons why this is such a complex issue. Whilst the regulations are understood, the practicalities of implementing and abiding by them are the real challenge. Although there is no one size fits all solution, an organization’s situation should be treated individually on a case-by-case basis. Even then, there is often no definitive answer and it’s necessary to make considered risk-based decisions. We will discuss the main considerations and apply some practical solutions.
The GDPR imposes restrictions on the free movement of EU residents’ personal data information which relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. from the EU. With no physical border checks for data – data flows rapidly and unimpeded around the globe in a way that is almost untrackable and untraceable.
So the GDPR puts the onus on data controllers to take responsibility for ensuring the personal data they use is processed lawfully. In data protection terms, it must satisfy one of the appropriate lawful basis for processing and must not contravene any other statutory or common law obligations., fairly and transparently no matter where it is processed or by whom. Whilst controllers should make all reasonable efforts to ensure this happens, in reality, it is very difficult to manage and monitor.
Any data protection professional in modern times can not do without this basic knowledge related to global transfers of personal data. This training includes an Official Registered Global Data Transfer Officer (RGDTO) distinction acknowledged by the Global Association of Data Protection Professionals (GADPPRO) and participants will be registered in the EU Register of Data Protection Professionals (RDPP).
