The General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"), a European Union individual data protection law, became fully enforceable on May 25, 2018.
Obtaining discovery materials from the EU has been notoriously difficult for some time. The EU’s recently implemented GDPR serves to add further concerns to this mix when dealing with materials that include personal data. We will highlight some of these concerns and how to address them. Later, we will take a step back and look at Cybersecurity issues generally, highlighting potential pitfalls and strategies to address them.
