In our virtual and information-driven world, data privacy and security have emerged as critical concerns for consumers, businesses and regulators. Our series explores the latest developments in this rapidly changing intersection of the law and technology to help companies navigate new and sweeping regulations in the United States and beyond, protect against increasingly sophisticated cybercrimes and safeguard valuable consumer information. Led by an interdisciplinary team of Duane Morris attorneys, the Data Privacy and Security Landscape Webinar Series offers an in-depth discussion and analysis of the key issues and practical strategies for meeting the challenges of our digital, global economy.

In cross-border litigation, different local and international privacy rules and regulations present obstacles to obtaining information and documents during discovery. Our seminar will discuss the current approach of U.S. and foreign courts to discovery obligations, cooperation agreements with foreign authorities and practical examples of the interplay between global laws and regulations.

Topics include:

  • Overview of the privacy laws and blocking statutes in foreign jurisdictions that have the potential to frustrate discovery in U.S. courts by preventing the transfer of personal information.
  • Practical steps to mitigate risks in discovery and facilitate cooperation from foreign courts and parties.
  • The impact of Schrems II and the adoption of the EU’s new Standard Contractual Clause.
  • How judicial authorities and government agencies might attempt to resolve these issues in the future.
  • The expanding use of U.S. tools such as Section 1782 to secure global discovery.
