5:30 - 7:00 pm: Roundtable Discussion

The NCSA’s Mosaic browser was released to an unsuspecting world in 1993. In the two decades since then, the dramatic changes in technology have been mirrored by equally massive changes in Information Technology Law as the laws, lawyers and courts have adapted to an interconnected world and issues as diverse as Y2K, Privacy, Security, eCommerce, IT Governance, IP indemnification and everything else to which the word “Cyber” can be attached.

In this Roundtable, IT.CAN asks leading practitioners to predict what the next twenty years will bring.
