Smells Like Teen Hackers: The Secret Origin Story of American Cybersecurity (03/30/2021)

Program Number: 3178 Presenter: David Kalat

This webinar explores how fictional scares and even more worrisome “stranger than fiction” scares in 1983 led to the enactment of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFA) and the Computer Security Act of 1987. The historical framing is used to explain why certain limitations or peculiar features of these laws were enacted. This discussion also examines criticisms of these computer security laws by civil libertarians and privacy advocates, and ways in which the laws have been challenged and amended to address those critiques. In many ways, the secret origin story of American cybersecurity begins in 1983, when the very idea of computer crimes seemed to many like science fiction. Personal computers were still a novelty, and the only users of the Internet were government scientists.

Program Number: 3170 Presenter: Crystal McElrath, Esq., Nichole Novosel, Esq.

In the face of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many employers have had to consider both the business and legal implications of ceasing operations versus shifting to telework versus attempting to continue in-person work. The introduction of COVID-19 vaccines adds additional questions regarding re-opening of workplaces. This webinar will address recent executive orders, federal legislation as well as guidance from the EEOC and OSHA regarding teleworking, re-opening, and vaccination of employees. Does the Americans with Disabilities Act protect employees at risk of contracting COVID-19? When should/must employers provide teleworking options? May/should employers require employees to be vaccinated? What liability might employers face with respect to requiring and/or administering the vaccine in order to re-open?

Internal Investigations – Top Tips, Strategies and Considerations (03/23/2021)

Program Number: 3167 Presenter: Wilfredo A. 'Willy' Ferrer, Esq., Michael Hantman, Esq.

As we enter a new presidential administration where the expectation is that law enforcement and regulatory scrutiny will increase, American businesses need to be prepared. Internal investigations are key parts of corporate life today. But if not conducted the right way following processes that are sound, tested and beyond reproach, an internal investigation might never get off the ground and might result in greater problems for the company. Whether triggered by a grand jury subpoena, a whistleblower or an enforcement action, internal investigations must be taken very seriously and should be run by personnel who are free from conflicts with every step and strategy mapped out clearly and in advance. And in the time of COVID-19, we will address new options to consider if travel is unsafe. Our presentation will highlight best practices – and pitfalls to avoid – when conducting an internal investigation.
