September 24: China Cybersecurity Law: No Place to Hide

The goal of the Chinese cybersecurity regime is to create a system where all network data and communications are completely transparent to the state. Every networked communication in China is open to inspection and retrieval by the Chinese government. From the standpoint of foreign companies operating in China, this means there is no place to hide. If company information crosses the Chinese border, that information is open to the Chinese government.
Among other things, the webinar will answer the following:
  • How does cybersecurity fit into Chairman Xi’s concept of Comprehensive National Security: digital authoritarianism, iDictatorship, and the social credit system?
  • Why is this a business issue and not a traditional national security issue?
  • What is the statutory and regulatory basis for the cybersecurity regime?
  • What are the key statutes and regulations?
  • What techniques does the Chinese government use to gain access to all networked communications and data?
  • What are the international implications of China's cybersecurity regime?
  • How is China extending its cybersecurity via its Digital Silk Road Initiative?
  • What can your company do against this?

October 12: The Challenges of Women in Law, Construction, & Insurance

The world we live in has come a long way for equal treatment of women in the workplace. It's no longer unheard of for women like our panelists to excel in law, construction, and insurance. However, female professionals in these industries are still a minority voice, and while the tides of progress have shaped a better and more inclusive workplace, these women often face challenges their male peers do not. 
 Any workplace that is primarily male would benefit from our critical discussion about the ethics of gender inequality, but it is especially relevant to those who work in insurance, law, or construction as our panelists will draw from their experience in these industries. Law and insurance professionals especially have a duty to examine their behavior for potential bias, as discrimination in these fields can lead to potentially unethical situations, both with their peers and the sensitive cases they handle.
