The Rise of Deepfake Audio Means It's Time to Revisit Business Email Compromise Scams and Ways to Reduce Risk (11/01/2019)

Program Number: 29206 Presenter: Avi Gesser, Esq., Clara Y. Kim, Esq.

Perhaps the most costly cyber-related threat that companies face are Business Email Compromise (BEC) scams, which, according to the FBI, have cost businesses over $26 billion in the last three years. BECs involve cyber criminals using fake or compromised email accounts to send fraudulent wire transfer requests to unwitting employees at companies who perform transfer of funds, causing them to send money to the criminals. These threats are becoming more sophisticated and effective, as advances in technology, including the use of deepfake audio, are making the scams harder to detect. At the same time, regulators have turned their attention to BECs, and the SEC and FINRA have recently alerted companies that their internal controls may come under regulatory scrutiny if they are the victim of a preventable BEC scam. This presentation will cover the current threat environment companies face from BECs, the evolving regulatory landscape, and practical steps companies can take

Biometrics and the Law: How the CCPA Fits into the Bigger Picture (11/22/2019)

Program Number: 29193 Presenter: Susan Fahringer, Esq., Nicola Menaldo, Esq., Sari Ratican, Esq., Anna Mouw Thompson, Esq.

Commercial applications for biometric data have become increasingly cost effective and prevalent in recent years. Companies now commonly use eye scans, finger scans, or facial recognition technology to prevent fraud or facilitate secure transactions, and newer uses range from facilitating airport security screens to recognizing facial features and emotions for the visually impaired. States across the country have responded by enacting or proposing legislation specific to biometrics. One of the enacted statutes, the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act, can easily expose companies to millions of dollars in per-violation damage awards. Other states regulate the collection and use of biometric data through general privacy laws that encompass biometric data. The California Consumer Protection Act is an example of this: the protections of the CCPA cover “personal information” of California residents, including biometric data. Companies that collect, use, or store biometric data should be aware of the legal landscape so they can

CCPA: The More Things Change, The More Things Stay the Same (10/21/2019)

Program Number: 29165 Presenter: Sadia Mirza, Esq.

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) takes effect in less than three months and is still riddled with confusions and ambiguities. Organizations seeking to comply with the new privacy law are left in the dark trying to understand not only the intent behind certain CCPA provisions, but also how to comply. Over a dozen amendments were introduced over the last year to clarify, alleviate, and minimize certain operational concerns, but only certain amendments will likely be signed into law. Join Troutman Sanders’ attorney Sadia Mirza for a discussion relating to the scope of the act, new rights afforded to California consumers, potential exemptions, and a discussion relating to the amendments that have surfaced the California Legislature this year and what they mean in terms of operationalizing compliance.

The Nuts and Bolts of Domain Names and How They Interplay with Trademarks (12/12/2019)

Program Number: 29151 Presenter: David Postolski, Esq.

Very often individuals and companies believe that securing the domain name means they secured the trademark registration. In reality that is not the case.

Enter illegal cybersquatters and companies that hold domain names hostage for brand owners that desperately need the domain name to increase their digital marketing space. There are unique and legal procedures in place that one must follow that can result in brand owners obtaining the domain name they desperately want or need that may already be taken. This presentation will explore the nuts and bolts of the Domain Name Process and its important interplay and interaction with the trademark processes around the globe.

The ePrivacy Directive and Regulation: Where do we stand (09/16/2019)

Program Number: 29148 Presenter: Julie O'Neill, Esq., Alex van der Wolk, Esq.

The updated ePrivacy Regulation was supposed to take effect simultaneously with the General Data Protection Regulation and while we have now marked the one year anniversary of the GDPR, the ePrivacy Regulation is still far from being finalized. At the same time, regulators are not waiting for ePrivacy when it comes to cookies enforcement. What is the interplay between cookies, consent and the GDPR? Are cookie walls still accepted? Does implicit consent still constitute valid cookie consent? How does GDPR apply to other online technologies such as device fingerprinting and behavioral advertising. Join us as we examine the impact of the GDPR on the use of cookies and similar technologies, even in the absence of an updated ePrivacy Regulation.
