Local Privacy Laws Not Ready for Prime Time: Enterprises that process or store the personal information of EU citizens will also need to heed EU member states' local privacy laws. GDPR has also allowed local data protection authorities to individually interpret some aspects of the law and add requirements. However, a lot of local privacy laws are not yet set in stone. “There are still member states lagging behind and working behind where they’re supposed to have prepared for, so for once we can say it’s not just organizations who are behind, it’s also the member states,” said Bird & Bird partner Gabriel Voisin.

It took less than a day for the General Data Protection Regulation to crop up at Legalweek 2019. Tuesday’s “Cross-Border Investigations: Protecting the Privilege and Meeting Privacy Expectations” panel explored the difficulties that lawyers and e-discovery professionals now face in collecting and reviewing data that spans multiple jurisdictions.

Moderator Adam Shoshtari, an attorney with Shook, Hardy & Bacon LLP, got the ball rolling by asking each panelist how they prepared their organization for the GDPR.
