The Privacy Advisor Podcast

May 1, 2020

The EU General Data Protection Regulation ushered in an enhanced private right of action for violations of the law, both for material and non-material damages. Attorneys say there's now a significant uptick in cases brought alleging such a grievance has occurred, and that they're often brought as a "follow-on" to data protection authorities' own investigations. In this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast, Orrick attorneys Keily Blair and James Lloyd, both based in the U.K., describe the uptick in civil litigation claims they're seeing and the ways that's changing things — including how companies interact with data protection authorities.
