Corporations are often subject to a variety of state and federal standards that govern their conduct. On the one hand, federal regulations provide predictability and uniformity, but in a “one-size-fits-all” manner. On the other hand, state regulations offer flexibility and room for experimentation, but may subject corporations to inconsistent or even incompatible standards. How do corporations balance these tradeoffs when deciding whether to advocate for state or federal regulation? And in balancing those tradeoffs, do they weigh general considerations of federalism? If not, should they?
Our panel of distinguished practitioners will address these questions. This panel is co-sponsored by King & Spalding.

The threat of cyber attacks is becoming increasingly apparent to businesses and corporations. Both state and non-state actors have in the past year conducted significant cyber warfare campaigns against businesses, threatening fuel and food supplies, divulging personal information, and more. What has been the fallout from these events and others? How should businesses respond to calls for regulation of critical infrastructure, cryptocurrency, and retaliation? Should companies pay ransom payments? Should companies assist the government in responding? What are best practices for ensuring company-wide security? These and other pressing issues will be covered by our panel.
