The New Sedona Conference® Transitional International Litigation Principles: Practical Help for Companies in Preparing for 2018 EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) & for Navigating EU Privacy Shield Requirements
Given the complex and dynamic EU data protection landscape—where the new Privacy Shield is in its infancy, and where the May 2018 effective date of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is fast approaching—The Sedona Conference® Transitional International Litigation Principles provide the best interim guidance for companies, counsel and courts alike in balancing the rapidly evolving EU data protection requirements with U.S. eDiscovery obligations.
Please join The Sedona Conference® Working Group on International Electronic Information Management, Discovery, and Disclosure (WG6) and Seyfarth Shaw for an informative panel discussion by a distinguished Jurist, and Fortune 500 in-house and outside U.S. and International privacy experts. The distinguished panel will unpack for attendees the publication’s invaluable practical and innovative guidance and materials for mitigating the risk and cost of cross-border discovery in transnational proceedings.
The Sedona Conference® International Litigation Principles on Discovery, Disclosure & Data Protection in Civil Litigation (Transitional Edition), recently published by Sedona Conference WG6 provides a clear and concise summary of recent EU data protection developments, including abrogation of the U.S./EU Safe Harbor Framework, the launch of the new Privacy Shield Framework, and the principal features of the landmark GDPR, effective May 2018, as well as the incorporation of "proportionality" principles in the U.S. discovery process.
