9.40: Keynote speech

10.10: Session one: Trades sanctions: Second generation trade sanctions investigations and how to navigate them 

Once, sanctions investigations meant OFAC, and OFAC alone. Not anymore. A typical sanctions matter these days will have four or five groups of regulators or enforcers in the room. That means the scrutiny of in-house lawyers and their day-to-day judgment calls on sanctions questions has never been higher. How can they get those calls right and avoid having a target on their back?  What causes these cases, in Joe Warin's words "to smoulder" - is there a way to spot them before they spark to life? What are the most important things to focus on when they do?

In this session a panel of individuals who've been through the fire on one of these much bigger trade sanctions matters will provide the lessons they learned in the front line - helping in-house counsel and private practitioners who've yet to go through the experience to prepare better.

11.25: Coffee break

11.55: Session two: Cybersecurity investigations and the aftermath: Art of responding and investigating at the same time

Cyber attacks are on the rise. In the aftermath of an attack, a company is in the unusual position of both investigating how bad things are and responding on various different fronts, all at the same time. Attacks can trigger a variety of obligations to regulators and customers, plus warning shots from the plaintiffs' bar. On top of all that specific regulations aimed at system security are now also starting to appear.    

In this session a panel of leading names will discuss the new set of skills that are needed to navigate these challenging occasions.

  • When to call law enforcement, what evidence to share, and what to expect in return
  • What to say to investors, the media and others
  • How to manage what is increasingly in-the-weeds regulatory scrutiny of cyber incidents
  • How to prepare for, and respond to, the growing risk of litigation over cyber matters
  • How to manage privilege, evidence preservation, and remediation in a fast-moving cyber event
