Blockchain is garnering big headlines largely as the technology behind cryptocurrencies. But its potential to revolutionize tracking, verification and security within a decentralized network has game-changing ramifications across multiple industries and environments including real property title, insurance and banking. This program will help clarify the real from the hype, and focus on relatively proximate opportunities in areas such as supply chain, document control, real estate transactions, the finance function, and other business and legal applications. No CEO or director will want to miss the insights to be gained about this disruptive technology: where we are now and where we might be headed as blockchain applications evolve.

Cyber threats, data breaches, and corporate fraud have led to the downfall of entire organizations, massive investment losses, significant legal costs, and more than a few top executives and directors losing their jobs and their reputations. As CEO’s, we must ensure that our companies' most important business assets remain secure and that we address threats to our technology in this age of cyber risks. However, preventing and/or managing these risks is a daunting task. Join us for a timely discussion on how to identify and protect your company from these threats including incidence response planning and cyber insurance.
WILL THE PARADES ON WALL STREET
AND MAIN STREET HIT A POTHOLE?
With the close of the first quarter, a significant milestone was crossed by the economy, or by “Main Street,” as it’s sometimes called. The U.S. economic expansion has now become the second-longest since 1930. On Wall Street, stocks powered higher, extending their run, which (if it continues) is already the second-strongest in the last 100 years. The parades on Main St. and Wall St. successfully shook off concerns over rising wages and higher interest rates. Will it continue?
