Working Group Updates and Announcements

New WG6 Brainstorming Group - International Internal and Government Investigations

Brainstorming Group - Overview


WG6 seeks volunteers to brainstorm on the interplay of international data privacy regulations and internal and government investigations. The brainstorming group will be expected to review The Sedona Conference International Investigations Principles ("Principles") and consider whether WG6 should draft a supplement to Principles or a stand-alone Commentary that provides practical and current guidance for issues not addressed in Principles, such as the involvement of AI and other current, applicable technologies, as well as changes in laws that may present new concerns.


Brainstorming Group - Member Expectations


Brainstorming group members will be expected to actively participate in regularly scheduled phone conferences to brainstorm on work product ideas. Members will also be expected to participate in the drafting of a detailed outline that allows a subsequent drafting team to prepare work product consistent with standards of The Sedona Conference.
