In this exciting new Gowling WLG webinar series, we will explore a number of emerging industry trends and issues related to advising tech companies. The series is presented in conjunction with the Silicon Valley Association of General Counsel All Hands Virtual Meeting.

Details on each session are below.

Session 1: Cyber security 2021 – Threatscape & protecting your internal business client

Jan. 21, 2021 from 3-4 p.m. ET

The continuing global pandemic has led to a heightened risk of familiar types of cyber attacks, as well as an influx of new cyber threats. In this session, we will review the cyber threat landscape for 2021 and the anatomy of a cyber breach and related responses. We will also discuss how law firms can protect themselves, and how to best advise and protect their clients.


Session 2: Cross-border & international data privacy issues

Jan. 26, 2021 from 3-4 p.m. ET

In many jurisdictions, changes in privacy law were common throughout 2020. This gave rise to new concerns and compliance issues for companies doing business abroad. In this session, we'll review what's changed in several jurisdictions (from the new California statute to the EU's Schrems II decision, and proposed changes to Canada's PIPEDA) and discus what these changes mean for American companies and the lawyers who advise them.


Session 3: IP law and strategy for AI - A European perspective

Jan. 28, 2021 from 2-3 p.m. ET

Matt Hervey, Gowling WLG's UK Head of Artificial Intelligence and co-editor of The Law of Artificial Intelligence (Sweet & Maxwell), will talk about IP law and strategy for AI in the context of evolving commercial, technical, legal and regulatory environments.
