e-DAT Practice Group Partner to Attend Upcoming ABA Program and Master’s Conference in Europe on E-Discovery and Data Privacy

Daniel Miller, a partner of the K&L Gates e-Discovery Analysis & Technology (“e-DAT”) Group and the firm’s Pittsburgh office, will attend this week’s ABA Cross-Border Institute in Paris. Daniel will also participate on a panel discussion at next week’s Master’s Conference in London.

The ABA Cross-Border Institute in Paris will provide education and practical guidance related to complex issues of cross-border data transfers in the context of different jurisdictions’ data privacy, protection and security laws. The Institute will address, among other issues, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and recent developments regarding a data protection framework with the United States, information governance considerations, cyber-incident response strategies, new technological developments and their data privacy implications, the intersection of data privacy and diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives, and mechanisms relating to US legal discovery of information located in France in light of that country’s blocking statue and the Hague Evidence Convention. More information about the ABA Cross-Border Institute can be found at Cross-Border Institute (americanbar.org).

The Master’s Conference in London will feature a wide range of discussions on issues relevant to electronic discovery, including artificial intelligence and different jurisdictions’ legislative and regulatory responses to that new technology, project management and legal operations issues, document review platforms, cross-border discovery, information governance, and data privacy. At this conference, Daniel will participate with other legal practitioners on a panel addressing information governance and its significance to data privacy issues and risks.
