Covington & Burling LLP/Cisco Systems, Inc.

As organizations across industries move quickly to develop strategies to harness the power of Artificial Intelligence, this panel discusses the privacy, cybersecurity, and policy issues associated with the collection of vast amounts of data and development of AI platforms. Topics for discussion will include:
  • What is Artificial Intelligence and how and where is it currently deployed?
  • What are the implications for data privacy?
  • How do we ensure the quality, integrity, and security of AI algorithms?
  • Who owns the data (and other commercial considerations)?
  • What are some of the liability issues associated with being a participant in the AI ecosystem, and how can manufacturers, developers, and cloud service providers mitigate those risks?
  • How are regulators responding to AI, and what is the current role of regulators in the growth of AI technologies?

The Real(time) Challenges of Handling a Data Breach

Hanley Chew, Michael Dicke, Tyler Newby & Kenia Rincon/M.K. Palmore/Flora Garcia/Wendy Wu
Fenwick & West LLP/Federal Bureau of Investigation/McAfee, Inc./Stroz Friedberg

There is no one-size-fits-all solution to addressing data breaches. Understanding the nature of the security threat and containing it quickly are just two activities that need to be performed, often at the same time. A data security incident suddenly can become exponentially more complex for companies, especially those that store sensitive customer information, operate in regulated industries, and/or are subject to SEC oversight.

This panel of in-house counsel, cybersecurity and regulatory attorneys, and forensic consultants will use hypotheticals based on real-world incidents to discuss practical approaches companies can use to address data breaches of all levels of complexity. The key areas covered by the panel will include:
  • Getting the legal team prepared for the inevitable
  • Identifying the nature and scope of a breach quickly
  • Hiring and managing forensic and other outside experts
  • Maintaining privilege during the investigation and response phase
  • Containing a breach without disrupting business operations
  • Informing and empowering the Board to help fulfill its governance obligations
  • Decision-making about possible disclosure in an SEC filing or press release
  • Communicating with law enforcement and other public agencies
  • Mitigating immediate and longer-term exposure to civil litigation and regulatory investigations

1:30PM-2:15PM   Room 203/204
Asia-Pacific Region Privacy Developments

Steve Wilson, Chia-Ling Koh, Jay Qin & Steve Yu
Osborne Clarke

Like its history of slow-then-accelerated economic growth, the Asia-Pacific region is now catching up to the US and EU with expedited attention to privacy and data protections. Indonesia and Thailand seem to be joining the privacy legislation programs of China, Japan, the Phiippines and Australia, and APAC privacy enforcement actions are likewise on the uptick, especially for cross-border data transfers. This presentation will survey the growing legal support needs for technology companies with APAC-connected activities.

2:20PM-3:05PM   Room 203/204
GDPR Update: How to comply and lessons learnt so farů

Kolvin Stone & Aravind Swaminathan
Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP

The EU is less than a year away from having a new sheriff in town: the General Data Protection Regulation. Much has been written about the onerous nature of the GDPR and many organizations are struggling with the requirements. This presentation will discuss the main issues raised by the GDPR for Silicon Valley companies, and practical guidance on how to comply combined with real insight into what is happening in the market.

3:30PM-4:30PM   Room 210
Going Global: A Tookit for Tech Companies Entering Emerging Markets

In addition, we will address the vetting of such persons, partners, distributors and suppliers, as well as evolving data privacy, cybersecurity and human rights issues as your company's platform expands, or if necessary, retrenches.
