All about those Borders + more: A week in privacy
Show Notes

In this episode of Serious Privacy, recorded on the anniversary of the GDPR (watch the recent webinar), Paul Breitbarth of Catawiki and Dr. K Royal of Outschool catch up on the past week or so in privacy.  What exciting things - or not so exciting things have happened. Most seem to be in the area of cross-border transfers. 

Join us as we discuss some history with the GDPR, with a light mention of Connecticut’s new privacy law, Quebec’s Bill 64, and People’s Republic of China’s PIPL (register for the upcoming webinar on PIPL compliance with Paul and Dr. K) We discuss whether the GDPR remains the gold standard of data protection laws, or one we want to inspire the others. We also discuss other related topics, such as the potential of the Global Cross Border Rules, based on the APECs Cross Border Privacy Rules, the EU-US thingy (the new agreement in principal, see recent webinar ), codes of conduct, and the Scope EU Cloud Code of Conduct specifically. For example, CloudFlare announced its adherence to the EU Cloud Code of COnduct and the rise in their stock. During this week, Paul missed the CPDP conference, including some of our friends - Emerald de Leeuw and Ralph O’Brien - along with the presentation by Professor Greenleaf on international data flows. 

We also covered the UK’s International Data Transfer Agreement, finalized back in March, and the new FAQs issued by the European Commission on Standard Contractual Clauses, which is similar to the ones Paul and K issued for TrustArc last year, with the exception of just a few tidbits that are discussed on the podcast.
