On October 3 The Lawyer in association with Epiq hosted the following webinar on GDPR. For everyone who missed the live version, the content is available here. 

Under the GDPR, data subject access requests (DSARs) are on the increase, with the time and money spent on them growing at an exponential rate. This will likely only get worse now that they are free to file, and with shorter deadlines making them more onerous for companies to complete on time. This webinar will brief you on how to effectively take inventory of and categorise the data you hold, and the steps you should take to limit your exposure to a breach.

In this webinar our panellists will discuss:

  • Data subject obligations under GDPR and practical advice on how to avoid common pitfalls
  • Key issues to consider when responding to a DSAR
  • Processes and systems that help manage the risks around data
  • How eDiscovery solutions like analytics and redacted document review can reduce the time and resource impacts of DSARs
