AccessData to Host EU Data Privacy Education Program Throughout UK and Europe
Elite panel of experts to appear at events in London, Amsterdam and Frankfurt
London – 21 April 2016 –AccessData Group, a leading provider of integrated digital forensics and e-discovery software, today announced the schedule for “The Cross-Border Quandary Tour,” an educational program focused on the challenges created as a result of conflicts between data transfer demands across global boundaries and privacy laws in
the European Union.
The program will feature a panel discussion with some of the world’s leading experts on data privacy, electronic discovery and predictive coding. Attendees will learn how to navigate cross-border conflict of law issues when privacy is at stake and U.S. regulators or courts demand personal data.
“With the use of websites, email, social media, mobile apps and data storage on the cloud, personal data is constantly flowing across global boundaries, leaving legal proceedings awash in data privacy issues,” said Abdeslam Afras, Vice President of International Markets, AccessData. “Meanwhile, corporate legal executives must abide by the new European data protection rules, deal with U.S. court orders to hand over Europeans’ personal data on EU servers and manage other complex tensions between data transfer and data privacy. Our program will dig into these timely issues and provide a forum for the exchange of professional best practices.”
The schedule for The Cross-Border Quandary Tour is as follows (click on the city of your choice for more information and to register):

Key topics of discussion at each program will feature an assessment of:
- Similarities and differences between U.S. and European e-discovery/e-disclosure requirements;
- What you need to do to prep for GDPR compliance—data protection officers, privacy-by-default, right to be forgotten and more;
- How to manage U.S. e-discovery preservation and collection strategies in the EU; and
- Privacy concerns and rising national regulator investigations of fraud, corruption, financial services and competition.
