AccessData has organised a short speaking tour in June when US Magistrate Judge Andrew Peck and I will speak in London, Amsterdam and Frankfurt over the week beginning 20 June. In each city, we will be joined by a panel of local experts with relevant knowledge there.
The tour is called The cross-border quandary: when data transfer collides with data privacy. We will consider the overall effects of the General Data Protection Regulation, the Privacy Shield, and various related developments, in particular as they affect eDiscovery both locally and in relation to data exports to the US for litigation or regulatory purposes.
Our subjects will include:
- How to navigate cross-border conflict of law issues when privacy is at stake and U.S. regulators or courts demand personal data
- Similarities and differences between U.S. and European e-discovery / e-disclosure requirements
- What you need to do to prep for GDPR compliance—data protection officers, privacy-by-default, right to be forgotten and more
- How to manage U.S. e-discovery preservation and collection strategies in the EU
- Privacy concerns and rising national regulator investigations of fraud, corruption, financial services and competition
- Hot topics including the “right to be forgotten,” mobile devices, app privacy protections and national security debates
In addition, we will take advantage of the presence of Judge Peck to have a discussion about the development of predictive coding and other forms of analytics. Judge Peck’s Opinion in Da Silva Moore was relied upon in both the Irish case Irish Bank Resolution v Quinn and in the UK Pyrrho case.
