From whistle blower allegations, government inquiries and subpoenas, to corporate due diligence, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) violations, and financial fraud – corporate counsel must collect and produce greater amounts of data from around the globe. Besides basic logistical issues, various tiers of data privacy restrictions complicate the process, requiring an in-depth knowledge of data storage technology and practices, multinational data transfer regulations, and general e-discovery best practices. For example, if data is required in response to a regulatory request in the United States, yet the custodians are based in France and Germany, how can the data be collected and reviewed in a defensible manner in compliance with EU as well as French and German data privacy laws? This program will outline the key considerations and best practices for collecting and assessing data in a defensible and secure manner.
