Ever-evolving regulatory standards mean tech companies must evaluate their risks consistently, and institute proper controls and compliance to limit risk exposure.

  • Emerging trends impacting the technology sector.
  • How tech companies are responding to risk management and mitigating risk around various issues (e.g., cybersecurity, intellectual property, trade secrets, data privacy and more).
  • The latest trends and patterns surrounding enforcement actions by regulatory bodies and evolving geopolitical risks.
  • Best practices and considerations for developing corporate strategy around data governance and compliances.
