The Sedona Conference Working Group Six- New International Discovery and Privacy Principles Proposed

Original broadcast date: May 10, 2012
Today, multinational companies with headquarters or significant operations in the U.S. are subject not only to broad U.S. civil discovery obligations but also to potentially conflicting foreign data protection and privacy laws. Attempting compliance with these multiple rules and regulations presents a significant legal and operational challenge for these companies.  
Since its inception, The Sedona Conference Working Group Six on International Electronic Information Management, Discovery and Disclosure has worked to harmonize these competing considerations. Recently, the group issued its draft “International Principles on Discovery, Disclosure & Data Protection: Best Practices,Recommendations & Principles for Addressing the Preservation and Discovery of Protected Data in U.S. Litigation.”for public comment.The goal is to provide a framework and tools for managing the risk of EU-U.S.transfers of personal data in the context of cross-border litigation and regulatory investigations.
Join our expert legal panel to hear an overview of the working group including its diverse makeup and process, the principles that have been developed over the last six years and what practical ways your organization can use them.
