2019 Forum Focus : Part 1

Join us for this year’s three-part Forum Focus Series as industry leaders discuss blockchain and smart contracts, including the legal and regulatory issues you may face as you navigate your business through these innovative technologies. 
Who Should Attend
This program is beneficial to all members of the Legal Department as well as members of senior leadership interested in use cases for blockchain technology, including streamlining logistics management, new approaches to finance functions and modernizing IT and security procedures.  The program will help all attendees understand the potential of blockchain and how it may impact the business decisions they make now and in the future.
Note: In-House Members are welcome to attend one, two or all three sessions.

PART ONE: What is Blockchain & Should My Company Use It?

Depending on who you listen to, blockchain and cryptocurrencies are either overhyped or revolutionary. The truth is probably somewhere in between. One thing is certain: They are disrupting processes and systems that currently rely on centralized authorities. Is this a good thing? Should your company explore them? Do the costs justify the investment in this still untested technology? This session will help answer those questions. The panel will explain in clear terms what blockchain technology is, how various industries are testing it and using it in live transactions, and give you tools to assess whether it is right for your business.
