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.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!

As a trial lawyer, day-to-day information processing is daunting for my client service. I’ve come to rely on ACEDS to keep me on the ‘edge’ of the curve on e-discovery. It’s a source I ‘ping’ ASAP.
