Schrems II and International Data Transfers: A GCC Perspective
Join Lori Baker and Ian Evans as they discuss the impact of the Schrems II ruling on international data transfers and transfers mechanisms in the Middle East. The Schrems II ruling invalidated the EU-US Privacy Shield and subjects a major data transfer mechanism, SCCs, to greater scrutiny. This ruling affected many jurisdictions, not just the EU and the US. In this discussion we will cover the reaction and potential long-term effects of Schrems II ruling in the Middle East, and how DIFC entities can transfer data in a post-Schrems II compliant manner.
