Join us for a discussion of the E.U. General Data Protection Regulation and the new People’s Republic of China data privacy law and the potential impact on e-discovery in litigation. We’ll also discuss how changing technologies in cloud computing might impact preservation and collection in e-discovery, including cross-border data sharing. Presenters include experienced attorneys from Dechert LLP based in the U.S., Asia and the E.U. The session will conclude with a Q&A. Jim Waldron, director of EDRM, will moderate the discussion.
