Macklem will be one of the presenters during the Third Annual Alabama Business Law Conference on Friday, Oct. 27, 2017, at the Embassy Suites Birmingham – Hoover. His presentation, “Cyber Attacks and Data Breaches,” will occur from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. and will cover the following highlights:

  • The question is not if, but when. Learn how to proactively advise clients on responding to a data breach before it happens.

    • Attorney-client privilege considerations
    • Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard issues
  • The ever-evolving arena of data breach litigation
    • Judicial disagreement on the issues of Article III standing – who is the victim here?
    • Class action considerations
    • Rise in subrogation claims
    • Administrative claims

The Alabama Business Law Conference packs one day with Supreme Court Justice William B. Sellers and leading authorities delivering critical law practice guidance on the hottest topics and some of the most complex issues a business law practitioner could face. Highlights include:

  • Drafting LLC agreements under Alabama’s new LLC Act
  • Best practices for drafting covenants under Alabama’s Restrictive Covenant Law
  • Elements of a veil-piercing claim and real world examples
  • Bankruptcy issues that every in-house counsel and general transaction lawyer need to master
  • Advising your clients on how to respond to a data breach before it happens
