Security and openness seem like contradictions, but in modern communications systems from 5G to the Internet, increasingly you cannot have one without the other.  This CLE will explore the technologies – both hardware and software – that help create trust in communications networks and how the legal and policy landscape has evolved to account for the changes in technology.

1:00 1:05 p.m.         Welcome and Introductions

1:05 – 2:00 p.m.         Technology
This panel will explore the technologies the underpin trust and security in today’s communications networks.  It will detail how the hardware and software layers work together and independently to produce a superior security posture from the single-vendor solutions that characterized previous generations of technology.  Finally, panelists will turn an eye to the future to discuss what’s next for this critical area of communications technology.


2:00 – 3:00 p.m.         Law & Policy
The interplay between law, policy, and technology has always been a delicate dance… usually with law and policy playing catch-up.  However, as society continues to grapple with the pervasive role of technology in our lives, policy is catching up fast.  This panel will explore the current state of the law from the perspective of the private sector and from the policymakers that are engaged in change and enforcement.


COST: $135.00 for Private Sector Members; $50.00 for Government/Academic/Transitional/Retired Members; No charge for Law Student Members; $205.00 for Non-Members
