Yesterday evening, 29th March 2018 I attended a BCS Law Specialist Group event – GDPR: Anonymisation,re-identification risk and GDPR profiling. The talk was presented by Dr. Amandine Jambert from the French Data Authority CNIL. The anonymisation slide is interesting.

over 900 US cases

I came across this electronic discovery database and wondered if there is a similar database for non US cases. I will continue to search for non US cases. For information, the electronic discovery database is maintained by K&L Gates and here’s the blurb: “Electronic Discovery Case Database  K&L Gates maintains and continually updates a database [...]
