Examining proposals for data transfers out of Canada

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - 3:45pm to 5:00pm
Panel Description: 

The dialogue leaders will examine Canada's newly released Digital Charter and related reform proposals under The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) as they relate to companies' ability to transfer data out of Canada. The panel will discuss the reasons for Canada's reevaluation of its data transfer scheme and how companies may handle different mechanisms for transfer, including consent. Dialogue leaders will evaluate whether consent and other suggestions for transfer adequately address the privacy concerns meant to be addressed by reform proposals, and the possible effect of the proposals on day-to-day law firm and legal service provider operations, with reference to the current WG7 (Sedona Canada) member comment draft on law firm privacy and security.
