A dynamic review of Cryptocurrency and Blockchain technologies will be provided including a background and classification of technologies. This program will touch on the various issues raised for attorneys, regulators, and security professionals when considering the growth and future evolution of the space. We will cover some of the key issues in this dynamic landscape from touching on "smart contracts" (are they really that smart?), to high level security issues, to challenges being faced by regulators and lawmakers. We will also review how to view blockchains in industry versus those being used by startups and why these are not the same. This is not a hype session, but a realistic look at what's happening, so that you may better assess the impact it will have on your world.

Everyone is talking about the GDPR, but Women in eDiscovery is here to tell you what it means for discovery. The European Union's General Data Privacy Regulation is enforceable as of May 25, 2018. But the Regulation is here to stay, so it isn't to late to learn the dos and don'ts of cross-border collections. Our panelists will explain the process step by step, so that next time you're confronted with the need to get to custodians or information in Europe, you'll know what to do to steer clear of violating EU data privacy laws--a mistake that could cost the client between 10 and 20 Million Euro.
