                  Why You Should Attend

                  This program addresses the role of law enforcement in cybercrime matters and how attorneys can handle their cooperation with law enforcement, including handling requests from law enforcement agencies. Our expert faculty also addresses cyber-insurance considerations, namely the role of the carrier and U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) guidance on ransom payments using cryptocurrency.

                  What You Will Learn

                  • The role of law enforcement in cybercrime investigations

                  • Data breach reporting requirements

                  • The role of cyber-insurance and the role of the carrier

                  • Responding to requests for law enforcement; how they can help; the law enforcement “hold”

                  • When not to report a cybercrime incident to law enforcement

                  • Recent guidance by the US Treasury Department's OFAC on payments of ransom using crypto-currency

                  Who Should Attend

                  Attorneys involved in cybercrime matters, including data and privacy breaches among other forms of cybercrime, should find this program helpful.

                        FINTECH August 9 2021

                        Now more than ever, consumers around the world have access to financial services. Why? Most experts agree the COVID-19 crisis has accelerated the development and implementation of financial technology solutions already in the works before the crisis. What does that accelerated evolution mean for the industry, for consumers, and for the attorneys who represent them? At PLI's FinTech 2021, you'll hear from technology leaders, government regulators, and leading attorneys about the legal and compliance issues arising out of recent developments in financial technology.

                        Key Topics Will Include:

                        Get an update on crowdfunding and other capital-raising platforms
                        Examine the proliferation of robo-advisors, how they've performed during a volatile market, and the future of financial advice
                        Learn the latest SEC guidance relating to the use of financial technology for trading and other activities
                        Take a look at the expansion of blockchain technology
                        Explore the cybersecurity and privacy concerns raised by the increased use of financial technologies

                          drones and the law


                          While drones have been popular with consumers for years, their use by government entities, including state and local law enforcement agencies, is becoming more widespread. Drones are being used for a variety of purposes, ranging from public safety functions to the recording images of real property. A recent Michigan appellate decision in a zoning dispute addressed the legality of the use of a drone by a municipality to take aerial images of property without the property owners’ permission and, in doing so, considered a number of issues on which this Briefing will focus.
                          Join Gail Gottehrer of the Law Office of Gail Gottehrer LLC and Ronald J. Hedges of Dentons US LLP as they discuss, among other things:
                          • The constitutional distinction between private and state action and the impact of third parties on that distinction (10 minutes)
                          • U.S. Supreme Court precedent that may affect drone use (10 minutes)
