Relativity webinar today: Corporate cloud legal update

Relativity is presenting a webinar today, 30 May, in conjunction with Bloomberg. The title is Corporate cloud legal update: 2018 law, legislation, and regulation and, unsurprisingly, the principal subject is the Clarifying Lawful Uses of Overseas Data (CLOUD) Act, 2018.

That act, with its potential for US authorities to reach into foreign (that is, our) data sources, raises interesting and important matters of law relating to both privacy and jurisdiction. It also has practical implications for corporations, whether US ones or others. It is not the only legislation with cross-jurisdictional impact, with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) taking effect at the same time as the CLOUD Act.

I recently published an interview with David Horrigan of Relativity about both the CLOUD Act and the GDPR. David Horrigan is one of the participants in today’s webinar. The others are former US Magistrate Judge James Francis IV who, before his retirement, made the original order in the US v Microsoft case (the “Dublin Warrant” case), and Patrick Zeller, Enterprise Privacy Officer and Associate General Counsel at Gilead Sciences.

There is more information and a link to registration details here.
