Capital Legal Services 16.05.23 Business breakfast ” Cross-border data transfer: how businesses can live with the new rules”

Staring from March 1, 2023, the amendments to Federal Law “On personal data” regarding the cross-border transfer of personal data have taken effect. Now, any company that transfers personal data abroad must notify the Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor) in advance. Nonetheless, in certain cases, Roskomnadzor may ban such transfers altogether.

The business community has already brought up many questions about the new rules, in particular:

  1. How and when to notify Roskomnadzor?
  2. What is the procedure for transferring personal data to “unfriendly” states?
  3. How is the requirement to localize personal data connected with its cross-border transfer?
  4. In what cases will sending documents to a “remote” employee or a foreign contractor be deemed cross-border transfer of personal data?

These and other questions will be answered during a business breakfast to be held by Capital Legal Services on May 16 in our St. Petersburg office.
