1. “AI Unchecked: Ethical Dilemmas and Legal Challenges from the Boardroom to the Courtroom”
• Speakers: Adriana Sanford, Hon. Noel H. Hillman (Retired). As the use of AI continues to expand in the business and legal world, it brings with it a host of ethical and legal dilemmas. From the boardroom to the courtroom, the impact of AI is raising important questions about its use and implications. Session topics include, among others, the admissibility of AI-generated evidence in court, ethical considerations of using AI in business decision-making, SEC and DOJ enforcement priorities centering on AI, and potential biases and discrimination from AI algorithms.

2. “Navigating Cybersecurity Disclosures Amidst SEC Regulations”
• Speakers: Adriana Sanford, Karen Worstell. As the legal landscape adapts to the complexities of digital innovations, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has mandated that public companies disclose any cybersecurity incidents in their 8-K filings. This regulation has heightened what is now being termed SEC Anxiety Disorder (SAD) among executives, who find themselves grappling with intricate disclosure demands. This session simplifies the process of preparing for an 8-K incident disclosure and offers a comprehensive roadmap for not just meeting, but exceeding SEC expectations, focusing on the intricacies of materiality determination and its significant downstream impacts. Through analysis of recent 8-K filings, participants will learn about prevailing trends, common pitfalls, and best practices.

3. “See Yourself in Cyber: Security Careers Beyond Hacking”
• Speaker: Ed Adams. Based on his best-selling book, Adams will explore the wide range of roles within cybersecurity, showing how each role strengthens an organization’s security.
