Eduardo El Hage, Federal Prosecutor, Federal Public Ministry
1.30: Session one: Multi-national resolutions: The new normal for global investigations
This panel will focus on managing investigations when multiple governments are likely to demand resolutions for the same factual conduct. As a former Swiss attorney general's office prosecutor recently told GIR, "There is more of a team spirit at the international level" today among international law enforcers than ever before, as Odebrecht, Vimpelcom and other resolutions last year showed. Every investigation now must be planned under the assumption that three or even more sovereigns could be involved in final negotiations and a company must be prepared to handle their competing interests.
Topics to be discussed include:
2.45: Coffee break
3.15: Session two: Getting your arms around the cyber threat: managing breaches, ransom ware and other electronic intrusions
Many in-house counsel say their top fear today is managing the aftermath of a cyber security breach. From the Justice Department and FBI perspective, you're a victim. Most everyone else thinks you're a culprit, including the Securities and Exchange Commission and Federal Trade Commission. State attorneys general, plaintiffs' lawyers and the press will want to know how you let your customers' data get stolen. In some cases, even Congress will pile on. This panel will help in-house and outside counsel learn how to manage investigations and an aftermath that is part technical and part legal.
Issues to be discussed include:
16.30: Afternoon keynote address
17.00: Chairs closing remarks
17.10 onwards: All delegates are invited to attend a drinks reception kindly hosted by Hogan Lovells
