Cordery’s Jonathan Armstrong will be presenting at the Code Blue 2020 virtual conference that will be hosted in Tokyo Japan on 28 and 29 October 2020.
Jonathan’s topic is:
Life After Privacy Shield – Will Data Transfer Laws Stop the World Doing Business?
This presentation will look at the history of the Schrems litigation and the recent ECJ case decision referred from Ireland. There some background to this in the film here: https://bit.ly/pshielddead. This has been called the most significant litigation in the history of data transfer and involved an Austrian law student succeeding against the might of both Facebook and the US government. It’s a gripping story and one that Jonathan has followed for more than 6 years now but it has important lessons for global business.
The talk will also look into the political difficulties facing data transfer from the EU to the US. It will also look at some additional questions posed by the judgment and the current political climate:
- Will Trump build bridges?
- How will this be resolved?
- What does this mean for other jurisdictions including Russia and China?
- What does this mean for Japan?
- Can national security and data protection ever survive together?
- Why has data transfer become so political?
- How can corporations in Japan minimise their risk?
Date : Oct.29th from 16:40-17:10 (Tokyo time)
CODE BLUE is an international conference where the world’s top class information security specialists gather to give cutting edge talks, and is a place for all participants to exchange information and interact beyond borders and languages.
CODE BLUE has invited well-known researchers from all over the world to share their latest findings, as well as discovering researchers in Japan and other Asian nations, and disseminating their findings and achievements to the world.
As technology and society move forward and IoT (Internet of Things) is becoming a reality, security is increasingly becoming an urgent issue. The Internet world also needs to gather researchers to collaborate and think together about ways to respond to emergency situations, and come up with possible solutions.
