A Targeted Discussion of Data Breaches: Responding to a Payment Card (PCI) Breach

Program Number: 2427 Presenter: David Chamberlin, Erin Nealy Cox, David A. Zetoony, Esq.

“Data security breach” has gone from being something discussed by legal-techies to a daily news items in mainstream media.

In this program, our presenters focus on what to do if you suspect a PCI data breach and specifically discuss the following topics: the unique contractual obligations that a company has to investigate PCI breaches, and to coordinate their investigation with their financial business partners; strategies for communicating information to the public so as to minimize the chances of litigation or investigations; and strategies for conducting a forensic investigation that is complete, accurate, and positions the company to defend itself in litigation if needed.

Program Number: 2426 Presenter: Roger A. Lane, Esq., Courtney Worcester, Esq.

The United States Supreme Court’s recent decision in Lawson v.

As a result of this decision, private employers that do business with publicly held companies need to be cognizant that their employees may be covered by SOX’s whistleblower protections and will need to ensure that they have the necessary policies and procedures in place to encourage and protect whistleblowers. Join Roger Lane and Courtney Worcester as they review the Court’s decision and provide practical advice for companies and their counsel to minimize their exposure to whistleblower claims.

Employee Benefits for Same-Sex Partners-Required Benefits and Best Practices Post-DOMA

Program Number: 2424 Presenter: Todd A. Solomon, Esq.

In June 2013, the United States Supreme Court ruled that the federal definition of marriage limited to one man and one woman was unconstitutional, and Section 3 of the Federal Defense of Marriage Act ("DOMA") was repealed. The Court's ruling had dramatic implications for employee benefit plans and requires many plans that did not previously cover same-sex spouses to do so. In addition, more and more states continue to legalize same-sex marriage, and the federal and state taxation of health benefits offered to same-sex partners has grown more complicated before it's getting simpler. To top it all off, the IRS has issued some guidance, but has not yet issued critical guidance governing the retroactive impact of the Supreme Court ruling. Join Todd Solomon, a partner at McDermott Will & Emery LLP, and a frequent speaker and writer on employee benefits issues resulting from domestic partnerships and same-sex marriages, as he discusses the Court's
