      International Tax Issues 2020
      Chicago
      Sep. 2, 2020

      Please note that this program will only be offered as a live webcast. Speakers will be participating in the program remotely.

      Overview



      Why You Should Attend

      As the world’s economies grow increasingly integrated through trade, acquisitions and joint ventures, U.S. international tax laws impact a greater percentage of businesses and transactions. These international tax rules affect not only large U.S. and non-U.S. based multinationals, but also increasingly affect mid-sized and smaller organizations and investors, financing transactions, mergers and acquisitions, and other commercial activity. A working knowledge of these international tax rules is of paramount importance to a wide variety of tax professionals.
      At this year’s Chicago program we will assemble some of the world’s leading experts and senior government officials to discuss the complex rules of U.S. international taxation in light of the CARES Act and the 2017 Tax Act, including the voluminous regulations that have been issued by the Treasury and IRS implementing the new rules. We will focus upon both operational and transactional implications of these rules and will describe the application of the rules to both U.S. and non-U.S. based organizations and investors.

              Cybersecurity: A Practical Guide to the Law of Cyber Risk

              Authored by 20 experts in the field, provides the practical steps that can be taken to help your clients understand and mitigate today’s cyber risk and to build the most resilient response capabilities possible.
              The book provides a comprehensive discussion of the complex quilt of federal and state statutes, Executive Orders, regulations, contractual norms, and ambiguous tort duties that can apply to this crucial new area of the law. For example, it describes in detail:
              • The leading regulatory role the Federal Trade Commission has played, acting on its authority to regulate “unfair” or “deceptive” trade practices
              • The guidance issued by the SEC interpreting existing disclosure rules to require registrants to disclose cybersecurity risks under certain circumstances
              • The varying roles of other regulators in sector-specific regulation, such as healthcare, energy, and transportation
              • The impact of preexisting statutes, such as the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, on current cybersecurity issues
              In addition, the authors have supplemented these more traditional sources of law with industry practices and the most important sources of soft law:
              • An explanation of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework and information sharing environments from a former Department of Homeland Security official
              • The views of the U.S. Secret Service on partnering with federal law enforcement and effective information-sharing
              • The guidance of leading consultants about the appropriate steps to prepare for cybersecurity incidents
              • The perspective of a leading insurance company on the evolving role of insurance in protecting companies from the financial losses associated with a successful cyber breach
              • The views of one of the most sophisticated incident response organizations on the proper elements of effective incident response
              Throughout, Cybersecurity: A Practical Guide to the Law of Cyber Risk includes practice tools developed during the hundreds of breaches that the authors have weathered with their clients. These valuable practice aids include checklists, an overview of the legal consequences of a breach, and a tabletop exercise.

                        Complying with laws governing privacy and cross-border data flows has never been more complicated. U.S. companies can no longer effectively compete in today's interconnected marketplace without leveraging data, monetizing it, and freely moving it across country borders. That is why implementing appropriate programs to comply with data protection laws emerging around the world has never been more important. Companies with operations in the EU, or those that otherwise deal directly with consumers in the European Union (B2C), or offer services to European companies (B2B), were forced to address the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") requirements.

                        Then California enacted a comprehensive privacy law in the United States: the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 ("CCPA"). Since then, other states have proposed similar legislation (Nevada), Brazil enacted its General Data Protection Law (postponed), and a ballot initiative may result in the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 ("CPRA").

                        In the midst of this, and to complicate an already complex area of law, the COVID-19 pandemic struck. And with it, a host of new privacy concerns arose as health screenings, contact tracing, and other return-to-office initiatives took off around the world. This four-hour "Boot Camp" – now in its fifth year – addresses all these issues and more.

                        In just a few easy clicks, you can watch the program from the comfort of your home or office and earn IAPP-Privacy and CLE credit.
