21 October: Brexit webinar Transferring data between the EU and Britain

On 1 January 2021, the Brexit transition period will end, ceasing the temporary participation of the UK in the EU Single Market and Customs Union. Regardless of the outcome of the ongoing negotiations between the EU and the UK on their future relationship, the end of the transition period may bring substantive changes and create new barriers for companies transferring data between the EU and Britain.
SFA/Ibec is partnering with the Irish Data Protection Commission (DPC) to highlight this data protection issue and to present guidance in the absence of an EU data adequacy decision. The briefing will be addressed by Assistant Commissioner Nicola Coogan, Head of International Transfers with the DPC.

Ibec Director of EU and International Affairs Pat Ivory will host the session alongside Erik O’Donovan, Ibec Head of Digital Economy Policy, which will include opportunities for your questions to be addressed. As this webinar is exclusively for Ibec member companies, you must register with your company email address.
