The struggle is real. With the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) set to take effect in May of 2018, the serious implications for corporate legal counsel and e-discovery teams are difficult to deny. Among other aspects of its broad reach, the GDPR extends compliance requirements to both data controllers and “processors,” a distinction that certainly includes e-discovery data processing in the context of litigation and investigations.

The authority for some of what is proposed is questionable and will likely be challenged in comments, if not judicial action, if such provisions become final.
