Virtual Event: Protecting Privacy and Ensuring Data Flows – A Practical View
December 8, 2020
Speaker: Aaron Cooper, Vice President, Global Policy, BSA | The Software Alliance
Today’s economy is largely digital and runs on two imperatives: data protection and data flows. Protecting personal data is not only a legal obligation; it is an expectation that businesses and organizations must meet to earn and retain customer trust. Similarly, the movement of data has become essential to the ability of many companies, large and small, to perform daily business operations.
Recent friction has emerged over these two core elements of the digital economy, with privacy and data flows increasingly perceived as incompatible following the European Court of Justice’s Schrems II ruling, including with regards to government access requests for legitimate national security and law enforcement activities.
This virtual discussion hosted by BSA | The Software Alliance brings together private-sector representatives to address the following questions: How do companies leverage data flows to conduct everyday operations? What is the ideal toolbox of measures to meet transfer safeguards? What could a long-term solution look like?
