It’s a wide-ranging discussion including on data transfer adequacy decisions, UK data protection, GDPR, tips and tactics for those transferring data and the Schrems litigation. They also discuss Facebook dating, privacy and antitrust, French drones and some slightly off-topic differences between the US & UK too.
