    12:00-1:00 pm - Courting Trouble? How IoT Attracts Litigation and Liability

    As the world increasingly turns to IoT devices, litigation and liability issues will inevitably arise. Evolving notions of privacy, new state laws, and unclear rules about responsibility for problems and liability for harms stemming from the use of IoT devices invite litigation. Join us for a kickoff keynote, followed by a stimulating panel discussion that will explore:

    • The litigation scene
    • Developing views on privacy and the impact of new state laws
    • How companies are planning to cope with litigation issues
    • The increased risk of B2B claims and disputes
    • Trends for the coming years, both in the U.S. and globally

    Joe D. Whitley, Chair and Shareholder, Government Enforcement and Investigations Group, Baker Donelson; former General Counsel, U.S. Department of Homeland Security (Keynote)
    Richard M. Martinez, Partner, Jones Day (Moderator)
    Cheryl A. Falvey, Partner, Crowell & Moring LLP; former General Counsel, U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission

    1:15-2:15 pm- IoT and Contracting: It’s a Big Deal

    Smart companies pay careful attention to negotiating and enforcing their contracts, as they make commitments they must keep, enforce counterparty obligations to ensure that business objectives are met, and manage risk and liability. Do your due diligence on IoT contracting by hearing perspectives from seasoned professionals regarding:

    • Best practices for IoT contracts (including machine-to-machine and smart contracts)
    • Risk mitigation strategies: vendor selection, due diligence, standards, etc.
    • Practical insights on contracts with global reach
    • Privacy and security considerations in vendor contracts
    • Monitoring and auditing vendor compliance

    Linda L. Rhodes, Partner and Co-Leader, Connected & Autonomous Vehicles Group, Mayer Brown LLP

    2:30-3:30 pm - An Ounce of Prevention: IoT and Insurance

    This panel of insurance insiders and legal practitioners will address how insurers are responding to the unique insurance coverage and risk management needs of companies that create, distribute, or work with IoT devices or industrial control systems. We’ll discuss potential coverage afforded under Cyber, General Liability, Product Liability, Tech E and O, Property, Crime, and D and O policies, all in the context of IoT and IIoT innovation.
