For those of you who are attending the American Intellectual Property Law Association’s Spring Meeting in San Francisco this week from May 12 through May 15, I wanted to let you know that I’ll be co-chairing a panel discussion with Janet Craycroft, Intel Corporation’s Director for Legal Counseling and Legal & Corporate Affairs, and Malcolm Harkin, Intel Corporation’s Chief Information Security Officer, entitled “Re-Thinking Protection of Corporate Secrets in the Wikileaks Era.
The presentation is from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Friday, May 13, in the Rose Ballroom, Lobby Level of the San Francisco Palace Hotel. My portion, Current Legal Landscape: Litigation Strategies for Victims of Wikileaks or Self-Styled Whistleblowers,” will focus on the volatile litigation issues arising from the WikiLeaks threat. Malcolm’s presentation, “Wikileaks Basics:  Technology, Ideology and What is Known About How Leakers Provide Material,” will focus on the technical aspects of confronting the WikiLeaks phenonmena. Finally, Janet’s presentation, “Advising the Corporate Client About Wikileaks:  Emerging Best Practices to Prevent Data Leaks,” will focus on best practices for detecting and avoiding data breaches and trade secret theft.
I hope to see many of you at what should be a dynamite presentation. But either way, don’t hesitate to email or tweet me (@TSLitigator) if you would like to compare notes, swap stories or grab a cup of coffee.
