What this session will cover

In this session our speakers will examine where the data and cyber litigation market is heading in the next year, including deep dives into: (1) the expanding concept of fairness under UK data protection law, and whether this will give rise to increased litigation, particularly in the context of data processing through artificial intelligence and machine learning; (2) the future of data class actions in the UK in light of various recent business friendly decisions; (3) the use of expert evidence on the true value and use (to criminals) of data stolen in cyber attacks, to help drive effective outcomes in litigation; and (4) various cross-border developments (including India) relevant to the litigation market in London.
