Web Conference: Fairy Tale to Worst Nightmare: Privacy Class-Action Lawsuits

This web conference was a part of the IAPP European Data Protection Intensive Online 2021.  

Original broadcast date: 16 June 2021

Three years of unprecedented change in privacy regulations have sparked an increase in privacy class-action lawsuits, some with damages surpassing hundreds of millions of pounds. Is your company at risk? Is your board aware? Do you know what your competitors are doing to protect themselves? In this session, some of data privacy’s most battle-hardened litigators explore why we are seeing a rise in privacy class actions. We examine the legal basis for privacy class actions and laws across the globe; address the differences from a global perspective; leverage real-world experience and discuss how cases play out in real life.
