The evolution of new technology for old businesses, the creation of new businesses and the increasing speed of communications and transactions present new challenges for compliance personnel. At the same time, new technology may offer new solutions. This program, presented jointly by the Business Law Section and the Corporate Counsel Section, will look at the compliance function in financial services firms, new sources of pressure, and techniques for managing risk. The panels will include inside counsel responsible for compliance, outside counsel who advise them, and a representative of IBM Watson to talk about how big data and artificial intelligence can be used to spot trends and identify risks. The program will conclude with a panel looking at whistleblowing, reporting up and related issues of ethics and professional responsibility.
The full program agenda is coming soon!
