Welcome From The Chair




Cyberlawyers,

Thanks to a strong push from the Committee, we have a full slate of terrific programs for the 2017 BLS Spring Meeting in New Orleans. We also have a strong group of presentations for the Winter Working Meeting in San Diego, January 27-28. More on the winter meeting next month when the CLE and keynotes are finalized, but please note that you will enjoy the U.S. Grant Hotel in San Diego's Gaslamp District, our Mexican-inflected committee dinner on Friday night, the working subcommittee and taskforce meetings, and the helpful CLE programs. San Diego in January is an important element too. Please plan to join us.

In the November newsletter, please see the article on the Cybersecurity Task Force Vendor Contracting Checklist, which will also be published on the Task Force's website and in Business Law Today. If your company or client must address data security with its vendors, then you should read and use this checklist. It is written by and for practitioners, and we thank Candace Jones, Cheryl Burtzel, and Lisa Lifshitz for shepherding it through to completion. The Committee's books on Social Media and the Law and on Data Security in Mergers and Acquisitions are in the editing process and should be released soon, making perfect gifts for the cyberlawyer on your list. Watch for them and buy one each for yourself.
