Program Number: 2904 Presenter: Elizabeth G. Litten, Esq.

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** According to a recent IBM survey, nearly two-thirds of consumers are more concerned about a breach of their private data than they are about going to war. Companies of all types and sizes collect and maintain customer data, and the customer assumes and expects that the company will protect their data and will not use, store, or share it in a way that puts them at risk. Today, a company should put as much effort into defending and protecting its customer data as it puts into defending and protecting its proprietary data and trade secrets, since breach, loss, or misuse will, at the very least, erode customer trust and the company’s reputation.

A FISA Primer- Everything You Didn’t Know, You Didn’t Know

Program Number: 2878 Presenter: George W. Croner, Esq.

Electronic surveillance represents the most important foreign intelligence collection tool available to the U.S. government. Correspondingly, the ability to surveil constitutes one of those activities most susceptible to abuse by a government against its citizens. For years, electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes was considered an exclusively Executive Branch authority, and every president from Franklin Roosevelt to Richard Nixon authorized its use. When serious abuses by U.S. intelligence agencies were revealed during congressional hearings held in the aftermath of Watergate, Congress reacted by passing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act which, for the first time, subjected foreign intelligence electronic surveillance conducted in the United States to a statutory regimen that included approval by a newly created Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. Today, there is more discussion, and controversy, about FISA than at virtually any other time in its history. This program is going to discuss the evolution of the use

Confidentiality and Context in the Workplace

Program Number: 2875 Presenter: Dove A.E. Burns, Esq., Benjamin A. Waters, Esq.

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** Courts have struggled for decades to define and enforce reasonableness in the context of NDAs. However, the legal debate over NDAs has only now entered public debate due to disputes amongst notable figures like Omarosa or Stormy Daniels. Further complicating is that the enforceability of these agreements is also affected by the United States Constitution, state Constitutions, and other state laws, as well as practices and Regulations of the various government agencies. The complexities are only exacerbated when you look at different employment contexts. Context and tailoring is key to the creation of enforceable and effective NDA’s.

Mastering Bitcoin, Blockchain and Digital Currency Law

Program Number: 2873 Presenter: John Rafferty, Esq.

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are unique from other currencies in that they exist on a continuously growing, immutable database, that when linked together, form a blockchain. Cryptocurrencies are largely decentralized and as such, are subject to competing regulations. This raises some interesting legal issues, especially with regard to the recovery of lost assets. In 2018, individuals around the world are using hundreds of different cryptocurrencies to pay for coffee, new homes and even legal services. But blockchain-use cases are not limited just to cryptocurrency. Increasingly, blockchains are being used for supply-chain management, intellectual property, fraud detection, regulatory compliance, audits, data storage and even smart-contract creation.
