Extract from Chris Dale’s article “Interview: Karyn Harty of McCann FitzGerald on the positive aspects of the GDPR and the use of eDiscovery tools in compliance”
Karyn Harty is a partner at McCann FitzGerald in Dublin. I spoke to her at Relativity Fest in Chicago about the benefits of the GDPR, about the perception of privacy beyond the EU, and about the extension of eDiscovery skills and tools into other areas of legal practice.
Before it took effect, the perception of the GDPR was largely one of doom and gloom, with a focus on its burdens and specifically on fines. I asked Karyn Harty what it looked like now from an Irish perspective.
