GIR Live New York: only a week to go New York (Credit:

The art of simultaneously investigating and responding to cyber attacks and the shifting sands of trade sanctions will be on the agenda at next week's GIR Live New York.

GIR's fourth annual conference in New York will be held on 14 September. The event will be chaired by Joseph Warin, the head of litigation at Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, and Bruce Yannett, head of Debevoise & Plimpton's white-collar and regulatory defence practice group.

The pair will be joined by a series of experts on cybersecurity and sanctions for two bespoke sessions on those topics. The cybersecurity panel will see speakers including PwC's director of cybersecurity and forensics Douglas Bloom; Benjamin Powell, the co-chair of WilmerHale's cybersecurity, privacy and communications practice; and Eric Chuang, the managing director of BDO's forensic technology services practice.

Adam Hickey, the deputy assistant attorney general to the DOJ's national security division, and Eun Young Choi, the cybercrime coordinator and assistant US attorney from the Southern District of New York, will provide the government perspective during the panel discussion.

Fulfilling that role on the second panel is Kendall Day, acting deputy assistant attorney general from DOJ's criminal division, who will discuss how to navigate trade sanctions alongside David Stetson, the co-head of Goldman Sachs' government sanctions group, Prudential Financial's chief regulatory counsel Stephen Shine and Jeff Telep from King & Spalding's Washington, DC office.

GIR Live New York will run from 9:00 to 12:50 on Thursday, 14 September at 200 Park Avenue in New York. Click here to register.
