“Cross border investigations can be a complex and time sensitive process and legal professionals cannot afford to get it wrong. Organisations must follow strict German data policies and procedural steps to ensure eDiscovery activities meet the BDSG data protection requirements. There are real penalties for breaking the law – so having a deep technical and legal understanding is critical to ensure a positive outcome.” Andy Macdonald, CEO of Consilio.
