Key questions to ask and potential resolutions

Presented by Chris Pell, David Regan, Patrick Kellermann


The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) grants anyone, as a Data Subject, the right to access their Personal Data from a Data Controller or Processor through a Data Subject Access Request (DSAR). Failure to respond to a DSAR in a timely manner may result in fines levied by the relevant regulator.

But inadvertently disclosing a third party’s Personal Data, or privileged, confidential, or business sensitive material can also be harmful to business interests and may even be considered a data breach. Moreover, sourcing, searching, and capturing data to respond to DSARs, whether from leavers or clients, places a heavy burden from the outset.

Morae and Squire Patton Boggs invite you to view this On-Demand Webinar to learn about:

  • What is the end-to-end process involved in receiving and responding to DSARs?
  • What are key risks to consider at each step?
  • Key questions to ask, and potential resolutions, in developing a DSAR response best practices programme.

We are excited to be joined by an expert practitioner, David Regan of Squire Patton Boggs, and an experienced DSAR recipient, Christopher Pell of Standard Chartered Bank. Morae’s Patrick Kellerman puts them on the spot, and draws out solid practical guidance on DSAR response and the opportunity it presents to assist clients at the flashpoint of potential litigation and investigations.
