The new framework for EU-US data transfers 21 March 23 | Online

Join Cullen International's free online briefing with Alisa Vekeman from the European Commission, Alex Greenstein from the US Department of Commerce, and Lisa Buettgen from the European Data Protection Board, and learn about the future of EU-US personal data transfers.

This event has passed

The European Commission started on 13 December 2022 the process of adopting an adequacy decision for the new EU-US data privacy framework (DPF). Once adopted, probably in summer 2023, the DPF will re-introduce the free flow of personal data between the EU and the US.

The draft adequacy decision comes after US president Joe Biden signed in October 2022 an executive order which aims to address the main issues identified by the EU’s top court when it invalidated in 2020 the EU-US Privacy Shield.

The European Data Protection Board (composed of all EEA data protection authorities, EDPB) adopted a non-binding opinion on the DPF on 28 February 2023. Also, the European Parliament will adopt in April 2023 (Cullen International estimate) a non-binding resolution on the DPF.

Cullen International has invited Alisa Vekeman, policy officer at the International Affairs and Data Flows unit of the European Commission DG Justice, Alex Greenstein, director of Privacy Shield at the US Department of Commerce, and Lisa Buettgen, legal officer at the German Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (on behalf of the EDPB) to present:

  • the main aspects of the DPF and the state of play of the adoption process;
  • the changes foreseen in US legislation; and
  • key points of the EDPB opinion on the DPF.
