ACEDS Summer Symposium: the GDPR, US v Microsoft, and the CLOUD Act from an eDiscovery perspective

The collection of data held abroad has long been a difficult (and interesting) subject for the US courts, state authorities and lawyers. 2018 has brought us the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the culmination of the battle between the US and Microsoft over emails stored in Dublin, and now the Clarifying Lawful Overseas Uses of Data (CLOUD) Act.

Relativity, FTI, the New England Chapter of the Association of Certified eDiscovery Specialists (ACEDS), and others come together on 13 June at Suffolk University Law School in Boston to talk about these things and about the very practical issues which arise from them for all those engaged in the keeping and collection of data held abroad.

The moderator is David Horrigan of Relativity. Other speakers include Sean Kelly of FTI Consulting and Mary Mack of ACEDS.

There is more information and a registration form here.
