Agenda


8:30 a.m. Registration

8:45 a.m. Welcoming Remarks

9:00 a.m. Opening Keynote Speaker:

  • Dr. Christine Izuakor, United Airlines, Senior Security Analyst

9:50 a.m. Break

10:00 a.m. Emerging Technology: Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, and Automation

  • New and evolving technologies such as artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, machine learning, and robotic process automation are now an everyday reality. Business practices are being rapidly transformed in all sectors—from expediting insurance claims, automating financial processes, and revolutionizing search algorithms to heralding a paradigm shift in cyber security and military technology. These emerging technologies provide a host of new benefits, but also create a horde of new risks. In this panel we’ll discuss the real impact that emerging technologies have on all businesses—not just tech-firms.

11:15 a.m. Break

11:30 a.m. Remote Governance: The Cloud and Third Party Vendor Management

  • The majority of businesses do not create the technology they use, whether it be the cloud, machine learning software, automated processes, or even physical devices like drones or automated vehicles. By necessity, companies must outsource development—and to a certain extent, management—to third party vendors. But what kind of risks and threats are companies exposing themselves to in the third party vendor dynamic? What are some successful models for third party vendor management?

12:45 p.m. Networking Lunch

2:00 p.m. The New Exposure: Legal Issues in Emerging Technologies

  • The emerging technologies in artificial intelligence, robotics, and digitization hold a wealth of promise. With technological advancement expanding at an exponential rate, the world of tomorrow is rapidly becoming today. However, the legal, insurance, and compliance issues these types of technology raise must be addressed now, and at a similarly fast pace. What are some of the legal issues brought forth by these emerging technologies, and how can they be addressed both internally and externally in a firm?

3:15 p.m. Closing Keynote Speaker

4:00 p.m. Reception
