Lessons Learnt from Recent European Data Protection Enforcement Actions

Created on September 3, 2020


European Marketing Director

It has now been over 2 years since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect. As most will now know, these regulations have dramatically increased the onus on organisations to take a proactive approach to data effective governance and reduce their exposure to Legal Governance, Risk and Compliance (Legal GRC) challenges. The monetary penalties for failure to comply with data protection are potentially severe. The reputational damage can fold businesses. Recent enforcement actions from supervisory authorities across Europe have demonstrated that organisations must take stock and ensure they establish and... Read More

What Will Happen to the Role of the E-Discovery Professional?

Created on August 28, 2020


European Marketing Director

The evolution in global data protection and privacy regulations has meant that the e-discovery industry needs to continue to step forward in order to keep up to date with regulatory and compliance duties.

Are You Missing These 3 Pieces to Your DSAR process?

Created on August 5, 2020


European Marketing Director

Individuals have the right to access their personal data under GDPR through a process commonly referred to as a DSAR (Data Subject Access Request). Data subjects can make a request verbally or in writing, and the organisation must fulfil that request within a one-month time-frame, otherwise they will not be GDPR compliant and can face severe consequences in the form of fines. It can be a very complicated and challenging process to defensibly respond to DSARs, especially within large enterprises where having to deal with high volumes of complex or specific requests...

5 Serious Data Questions Regarding Vendors & Third Parties

Created on July 29, 2020


European Marketing Director

As we often cover here, vendors are a significant source of risk. Your network of suppliers is legally obligated to comply with all aspects of the GDPR to ensure consistency and true protection for consumers. And although it's not identical to GDPR rules, the nature of the U.S.'s California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) make vendor management an incredibly important aspect of privacy compliance for many global companies—a good portion of whom likely have a large enough presence in California to warrant regulatory governance by the law. If your vendors are not compliant... Read More
