15.30 - 16.30: GDPR vs Trump vs Brexit vs Privacy Shield – with the world of data privacy in turmoil, what should you be doing to protect your/your client’s data? 

With Safe Harbor being invalidated and EU-US Privacy Shield and Swiss-US Privacy Shield yet to be tested, UK data privacy post Brexit an unknown, the General Data Protection Regulation coming into effect throughout the EU next year, and the Trump administration potentially poised to ride roughshod over EU surveillance concerns– the uncertainty surrounding the current regulatory environment will inevitably add complexity to the issue of data transfers, especially in the context of international investigations and disputes – and, by extension eDiscovery.

As regulatory investigations and related processes frequently span several years, strategic decisions made today around data transfers will have important ramifications down the line.

Do you know where your/your client’s data currently is hosted and if it is being held in accordance with the various and, at times, conflicting data privacy laws? If the answer is 'no', significant reputation and even financial implications could ensue.

This GIR Live webinar will break down the current data protection laws and set out some considerations and practical guidelines to minimize risk exposure for companies and professional services firms dealing with cross-border investigations and litigation.

In the GIR Live style, the webinar will aim to be highly conversational and will include time for a question and answer session with the presenters. 

 Issues to be addressed include:

• Data privacy and adequate protection

• What you can do now to remain compliant

• How to manage conflicts of law in a global investigation with practical tips from real life case studies
