New cybersecurity threats and data privacy regulations are increasingly impacting the dispute resolution landscape. At this event, a panel of distinguished speakers will discuss the anatomy of a cyberattack to understand current cybersecurity threats and will discuss approaches large and small organizations can adopt to protect themselves. The panel will also discuss current trends in data privacy regulation, particularly as they relate to cybersecurity, as well as the draft cybersecurity protocol for international arbitration recently released by the Working Group formed by the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA), together with the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR) and the New York City Bar Association (NYCBA). The Draft Protocol is meant to raise awareness about cybersecurity risks within the international arbitration community and to propose a framework that parties and arbitrators can look to in order to determine reasonable cybersecurity measures for their arbitrations. 

This event is organized by the International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution (CPR) and CPR’s Canada Advisory Board (CAB) and is generously hosted by Borden Ladner Gervais (BLG). We thank Arbitration Place for its support.

The event will be held live in BLG’s Toronto office and also available via live webinar.
