Jan Philipp Albrecht, the vice chair of the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) and the rapporteur of the European Parliament for the data protection regulation would like to invite you for a discussion on the consequences of the ruling in Case C-362/14 Maximilian Schrems v Data Protection Commissioner.

On October 6th, the Court of Justice in its judgement in Case C-362/14 Maximilian Schrems v Data Protection Commissioner, stated that the current scheme for data transfers to several US enterprises called Safe Harbor is invalid. We would like to discuss with the complainant Max Schrems about the consequences of the judgement and the possible way forward to a better enforcement of European’s data protection rights by US companies.
