10:15 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. ET – Countering Ever-Present Cyber and Ransomware Attacks; Moderated by Vinson & Elkins’ Palmina Fava

Cyber and ransomware threats are a persistent concern for companies and governments, with even great escalation due to the conflict in Ukraine and additional sanctions placed on Russia. Are new protocols and defenses necessary; and, if so, what critical actions must companies be taking now to be prepared. In addition, The U.S. SEC has proposed a new rule that would require cyber incident reporting within four days, periodic updates be disclosed, and management’s board’s role and oversight of cybersecurity risks. What should boards be seeing from management and what questions should be asked by the board?

Panelists include: Dr. Lisa Costa, Chief Technology & Innovation Officer, United States Space Force (former CIO, USSOCOM); Dr. Anastassia Lauterbach, MD The ExCo Leadership Group, Director RiskQ, easyJet plc, Aira Technologies Inc.; and Jan Tighe, Vice Admiral (Retired), U.S. Navy, Director, Goldman, Huntsman, Progressive, IronNet

12:00 p.m. – 1:15 p.m. ET – Energy Roundtable Discussion; Presented by Vinson & Elkins’ Sarah Morgan and Lauren Collins

​On August 12, 2022, a little over two weeks after the legislation was announced, the Inflation Reduction Act (the “Act”) was signed into law by President Biden. This Act represents one of the most sweeping pieces of climate policy legislation ever enacted in the United States, and is anticipated to spur record setting growth of green and clean energy and drive trillions of dollars of investment into the industry. This breakout session will explore the energy provisions in the IRA and what it may mean for the future of the energy industry.
