As detailed by The Law Society in the UK, "The outward flow of data from the UK to the EU/EEA remains unaffected since the UK government has determined that it considers all EU 27 and EEA member states to be adequate for the purposes of data protection." This panel will discuss the future, the next steps under these adequacy decisions, and what the future holds for EU and UK data flows.
