NEWS FOR LAWYERS AND SOURCING PROFESSIONALS

The Pittsburgh session of the annual Cyberlaw Update for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute (PBI) will take place on Tuesday, July 17. Moderated by Morgan Lewis partner Peter Watt-Morse, the update enters its 21st year and this year’s seminar will focus on current hot-button issues including blockchain and cryptocurrency and security and privacy concerns related to social media, IOT, GDPR, and the Dark Web.

Speakers at the all-day event include Mr. Watt-Morse and of counsel Emily Lowe, who will be speaking on privacy and security concerns regarding social media from both a policy and regulatory standpoint in the wake of the disclosures related to Cambridge Analytics; and associate Ben Klaber who will be reviewing such concerns as they apply to the burgeoning market of Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

The Morgan Lewis speakers will be joined by, among others, Steve Matsumoto from Carnegie Mellon University, who teaches classes in blockchain technology; Angie Keating from Reclamere, who advises law firms on avoiding and responding to cyberattacks; and David Palmer from Redmorph, a company developing browser controllers that allows consumers to avoid unwanted tracking.

The seminar will be held at the PBI Professional Development Conference Center in the Heinz 57 Center in downtown Pittsburgh, 9:00 am–4:00 pm (lunch will be served). CLE credit is available.
