    With an outlook such as this, we are looking to industry experts for guidance to navigate these unknown waters. To understand the trends that will be defining the Industry in 2017, and how you can make sure your organization is ready the face the challenges, and make the best of the opportunities to come.

    With cross-border enforcement on the rise, companies must consider what information, if any, to provide to various regulators. But that’s only the start of the challenge.

    GDPR vs Trump vs Brexit vs Privacy Shield – how can you protect your data? FRA’s co-founders; Toby Duthie, Frances McLeod and Greg Mason May 30 2017 2:30 pm UTC 75 mins
    With Safe Harbor being invalidated, EU-US Privacy Shield and Swiss-US Privacy Shield (“Shield”) yet to be tested, the outcome of Brexit being unknown, General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) coming into effect next year, and the Trump administration putting a spin on all the above – the uncertainty surrounding the current regulatory environment will inevitably add complexity to the issue of data transfers, especially in the context of 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 develop.
