Three years on from the introduction of GDPR, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) is expected to introduce a rule on materiality threshold on data breaches, while the EU will be introducing a new directive on representative action and regulations on class action.
With data litigation likely to be on the rise as a result, a team of Clifford Chance lawyers will be delivering a Webinar on the topic on 6th October, 16:00 CET.
During the session they will discuss:
- the role of the ECJ in strengthening data protection;
- the different approaches to class action regulations across EU jurisdictions;
- the impact that the European trend has on the US; and
- some of the key drivers for data litigation, including cyber incidents
