    Title: Data Protection litigation and (class action) lawsuits

    Synopsis: GDPR and the new Data Protection Bill/Act 2018) places a huge legal burden on data controllers and processers so you need to know how to react, respond and defend against a data breach in order to reduce your liability to data subjects. There is a new wave of litigation coming, including potential class action lawsuits.
