The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect on May 25, 2018. The GDPR has unprecedented extra-territorial reach. Many North-American firms, companies and associations will be subject to the regulation, which has no grace period. Penalties for non-compliance are significant-- as high as 20 million euros or 4 percent of annual worldwide turnover. In addition to their own compliance, corporations with employees or customers in the EU must take steps to help ensure that any vendors they permit to access EU personal data are compliant. This webinar will present the basics of the GDPR and this new era of “privacy by design.”

A Review Report is directed toward the substantive aspects of developing a credible opinion of the quality of another's work that was performed. Since the credibility of an expert's testimony is a fact to be decided by the fact finder, the Review testimony opines on the substantive elements of credibility such as relevance, reliability, transparency, etc. A Rebuttal Report essentially focuses on argument related to quantitative aspects of testimony as opposed to the qualitative aspects. Each may be appropriate at various stages of litigation or the processes may be combined to produce more effective rebuttal testimony.
