  • Event description

    Emerging technologies are changing the way companies do business, the workplace and how they operate. Companies are dealing with a range of new issues and their legal implications – from technology and the workplace to the latest issues around the Internet of Things; from blockchain to biometrics, from robotics to automation. The power of big data and the challenges of harnessing it are also of critical importance to companies, from doing business to protecting their information. With security and reputation issues encircling all of these, the challenges for legal advisors are evident.

    How can law departments and their legal advisors prepare for the changes and challenges of a disruptive world – with technology at its core? How do you ensure technology drives, not destroys, your company? How do you lead the charge whilst ensuring that the company is complying with all appropriate laws?
