Hogan Lovells Sponsors Inaugural Cybersecurity Law Institute in Washington, DC

With cybersecurity now ranked as the top concern for general counsel and corporate board members, and with the regulatory and legislative landscape so active (e.g., the House’s passage of CISPA and the President’s Executive Order), Hogan Lovells is proud to be a sponsor of the inaugural Cybersecurity Law Institute, to be held at the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, DC, on May 22–23, 2013.

Hogan Lovells partner Harriet Pearson, a co-chair of the Institute’s Advisory Board, said that “cybersecurity legal risks and issues are high-stakes, emerging, and complex. That’s why this inaugural program is so needed—to help build the legal community’s practical know-how and skills to advise on what has rapidly become one of the top enterprise risks in almost all industries.” She continued, “It’s not only the high-profile speakers, such as Deputy Attorney General James Cole, that will distinguish this event. Institute participants will take home practical insights gleaned from the program’s fast-paced and realistic simulations of lawyers, business leaders, law enforcement officials, and technologists working together to handle the kinds of cyber attacks increasingly common across industries.”

As described in the program brochure,

This wide-ranging, two-day program will provide in-house and outside counsel with the practical, pragmatic advice they need to effectively address today’s major cybersecurity challenges. Bringing together corporate officials, government advisors, law enforcement experts, and privacy analysts, this program will provide you with a blueprint for managing cyber threats with a meaningful strategy.

Rather than utilizing a series of “talking heads,” this Institute combines scenario-based role plays, focused panels, and interactive discussions between experts and audience members to make sure that you stay engaged in learning throughout the two days. Not only will you collect wisdom from the best and brightest minds in cybersecurity law and planning, but you will also be given a state-of-the-art set of guidelines, sample documents, and tips.

Rounding out the program are sessions on cutting-edge legal and technical developments. More information on the Cybersecurity Law Institute, including registration information, can be found on the Georgetown Law website. The program is eligible for CLE credit.
