Panel five - Fair is foul and foul is fair? Managing data protection and messaging in internal investigations and corporate compliance


Best practices and regulatory expectations around data management in corporate compliance programs and internal investigations continue to evolve, with different jurisdictions adopting conflicting approaches and legal regimes. This panel will focus on practical considerations for balancing investigative needs and data protection. In-house experts will share varying approaches of leading multinational companies, considering multifaceted legal and policy considerations.

Questions to be considered include:

  • how are companies making decisions regarding data retention?
  • what data should be preserved? For how long? For what purpose? and
  • how can the objectives of internal investigations be achieved while maintaining data privacy – and, ultimately, how can corporate compliance programs remain effective?
