Bitcoin in Your 401(k)? Doesn’t Matter, Cyber-Thieves Are Going to Hack and Drain It Anyway

Panel presented by: Crowell & Moring LLP

There is approximately $28 Trillion (yes, Trillion) in U.S. pension and retirement accounts. Most employers sponsor a pension or 401(k) plan which in most instances hold millions (and in some large companies, billions) of dollars in employee and employer contributions. These assets often represent an individual’s largest accumulation of wealth by the time of retirement. A juicy target for Cybersecurity rogues indeed.

The U.S. is experiencing increased data hacking of employee benefit accounts including 401(k)s. When employers are victims to these hacks they often turn to their various third party administrators, providers and insurers as well as check their own D&O coverage to see what protections and indemnifications are in place. Often they find outdated, non-existent language on the topic of data security or very limited coverage. This may give rise to a potential breach of their fiduciary duties under ERISA which in turn exposes individual members of their Board of Directors, officers and other employees to personal liability under ERISA.

This session will look at the heightened risks and potential safeguards and remedies for data breaches in workplace employee benefits under ERISA and related federal and state laws.

Oh, and Bitcoin as a potential investment in 401(k) and other retirement accounts? Yeah, let’s have a little chat about that….

Autonomous Vehicles: Navigating the Legal and Regulatory Issues of a Driverless World

Panel presented by: Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP

Technology companies and automakers have publicly stated that they would like to deploy millions of self-driving cars by the year 2020. The advent of these self-driving vehicles is creating a new legal and technical landscape where companies and their lawyers are working hand in hand with parties they never previously worked with. For example, automakers are now forging strategic partnerships with key high-tech companies in order to obtain highly technical components such as sensors, navigation software, sensors, and onboard computers. On the legal side, diverse and cross-disciplinary teams of attorneys are collaborating to tackle issues ranging from regulatory, product liability and intellectual property, to cybersecurity and privacy, communications, litigation and mergers & acquisitions.

This panel will address key priorities that company executives face in a constantly evolving field. The panel is particularly well set-up to tackle these subjects given that many of the inside and outside counsel are currently working together on the testing and deployment of self-driving vehicles.

Rock Your Profile

 
Presented by: LinkedIn Corporation

Ever wonder: “What is my LinkedIn profile conveying about me to the world?”
Or: “Why is it so easy to critique someone else’s LinkedIn profile, yet so hard to write my own profile?”

G-TEC is the first conference to host a “Rock Your LinkedIn Profile” program designed specifically for diverse legal professionals. Our experts will provide you tips and simple steps to take your profile from afterthought to unforgettable.

After the session, visit LinkedIn’s booth to get professional headshots taken and receive a one-on-one tune-up of your LinkedIn profile (on a first-come first-serve basis).

One Month To Go: Are you GDPR Ready?

Panel presented by: Womble Bond Dickinson (US) LLP

The new EU General Data Protection Regulation’s (GDPR) implementation date is May 25, 2018, and U.S. businesses should be aware of how it may impact them. The GDPR replaces the EU Data Protection Directive, and it can apply to US-based businesses even if they do not have offices or employees in the EU. It can also reach activities conducted outside the EU.

It is imperative businesses collecting and using personal data should know their GDPR obligations. Violators of GDPR face steep penalties. Regulators can fine a company up to 20,000,000 euros or 4% of worldwide annual turnover, whichever is higher. This program will lay out the GDPR’s main obligations, and discuss what US businesses are doing to comply with the law and the challenges that may lay ahead.

Reclaiming Our Space: How Virtual Reality is Creating a New Space for Women

Panel presented by: Loeb & Loeb LLP

The panel will address the challenges to and opportunities for gender parity for both content creators and executives in the VR industry.

I. The Opportunity

VR presents a somewhat unique opportunity for women as the barriers to entry are still relatively low and varied. It can offer female creators (and the executives powering their platforms) the chance to start from and maintain a level playing field. From VR meetups in NY, LA and the Bay, to Women in XR, an organization that aims to connect women in VR and AR with venture capital, it is clear that women are aware of this unique opportunity and are making strides to cultivate it. The panel will discuss the efforts they are seeing at their companies and the industry as a whole to create and maintain a space for female voices and the unique opportunities presented in the VR space.

II. The Challenge

Although the industry is new, it emerges from three male-dominated industries: video games, Silicon Valley, and Hollywood. In the past year, a few companies appear to have fallen into the trap of the “bro culture”, resulting in claims of sexual harassment and discrimination. The panel will discuss the legal issues created when female don’t have a seat at the table.

III. The Future

One of the key markers of VR is its ability to create a digital world that can communicate an experience that’s foreign to the viewer. VR may provide an opportunity to communicate the female experience in ways that entertain, educate, and that may (slowly) change the perception and treatment of women. Stanford’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab has been using VR to help companies and people experience the prejudices that some people face on a daily basis. The NFL, among others, is hoping to leverage this technology to give users a first person view of what it is like to experience certain prejudices.

The panel will discuss the future of VR and steps women are taking to keep the playing field level and the steps they are taking to reclaim their space.

Rainmakers Award/Luncheon Plenary – A Turning Point: How the National Conversation about Diversity and Inclusion is Hitting Tech

Panel presented by: Boies Schiller Flexner LLP

The recent spate of high-profile discrimination lawsuits against high-profile tech companies make clear that the tech industry is not immune from problems with diversity and inclusion. Indeed, companies have been hit with lawsuits from all sides—e.g., cases alleging both gender-based pay discrimination against women and “anti-male” bias at Google. And while the current dialogue has focused on gender disparities, claims of racial imbalance and age discrimination will not be far behind.

As the national conversation about diversity and inclusion comes to a head, this is a prime opportunity for a candid discussion of how such issues uniquely affect the tech industry. Why do innovative companies that view themselves as youthful and progressive still struggle with diversity and inclusion? Does startup culture define “merit” in a way that ignores certain underrepresented groups and that makes companies more resistant to diversity initiatives? How can in-house legal departments diversify their own ranks and lead their companies towards a more inclusive culture? Our panel of leaders in the tech sector—both at law firms and in-house—will explore how these issues affect their companies and whether the tech industry can also become leaders and innovators in the area of diversity and inclusion.

Bounties, Ransomware, and Other Cyber Hype for Lawyers!

Panel presented by: Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP

Companies across industries and geographies are besieged by talented, well-funded and efficient cyber-attackers who are deploying malware at an unprecedented pace – with flavors of Ransomware that seemingly change from day-to-day. Are there force multipliers that companies can leverage to fight back? Are there compliance, regulatory, and litigation risks associated with doing so? Or is it simply a folly to believe that we can ever stay ahead of the bad guys? Join a panel of experts on a tour de force of the latest “evil” technology afoot, the promise of “crowdsourced” security, and how legal counsel must evolve to talk-the-tech, and walk-the-walk to effectively mitigate and manage cyber risk for their clients.

Social Branding in the Age of Influencer Marketing, Native Advertising, and Augmented Reality

Panel presented by: Innis Law Group LLC

More than ever before, brands are looking for new and innovative ways to become a part of the social fabric of consumer’s everyday lives. This has created a perfect storm of brands integrating new technologies, social media, as well as native advertising into their regular marketing strategies. Influencer marketing, once thought to be a fad that would eventually fade away, has blossomed into its own industry. Native advertising is also here to stay. Brands are developing innovative ways to place paid media that seamlessly flows with the content that is already part of their consumers’ everyday lives. But, social branding does not stop there. One of the most exciting emerging technologies that companies have been using to achieve their social branding strategies are virtual and augmented reality.

According to Goldman Sachs, revenue from AR- and VR- related hardware and software is expected to reach between $80 to $182 billion by 2025. In other words, the possibilities for brands to integrate these technologies into their branding strategies are limitless! As social branding continues to evolve, brands will need dynamic lawyers who can keep up with the new challenges presented by it. This panel will discuss new ways brands are using new technologies, social media, and native advertising to achieve their social branding goals, as well as provide an overview on the emerging legal issues involved with social branding.

Sources of Success Roundtable Discussion: Learn how to L.E.A.D. (Leadership Exploration and Development)


Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
– Jack Welch, Former Chairman and CEO of General Electric

You may be a great lawyer, but are you also a great leader? Despite the fact that lawyers are intelligent and highly qualified professionals, they seem inherently ill-adapted to leadership and management roles. Why is this the case? What impact does it have on a practice or business? And if firms and corporate legal departments are to survive and thrive in the legal industry’s current state of flux, how should they address developing great leadership in their firms and companies? This session will provide an opportunity for attorneys to engage in a thoughtful discussion with senior legal leaders and their peers in intimate roundtable discussions.

Data Privacy Considerations When Using AI in Online Advertising

Panel presented by: Stinson Leonard Street LLP

The presentation provides an in-depth review of the main legal issues that arise with the use of AI in online advertising to collect and process consumer data. The panel will discuss the use of AI with respect to the internet of things, including wearables and personal assistants; website tracking, generally; and social media and website scraping. The panel will then discuss how these types of data collection can run afoul of Federal Trade Commission regulations, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act anti-circumvention laws, as well as the new EU General Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). Finally, the panel will provide some best practices, including what to look for in IT vendor agreements, as well as how to potentially shift liability in licenses for AI-related technology that are specifically us+C6+C10.
