    The "Protection" of Biometric Data and the Data Cyber Insurance Market: Closing in on a Tipping Point
    The capture of biometric data creates a delicate balance between privacy and efficiency. Recently, with the advent of COVID-19, it has become increasingly apparent that the use and collection of personal identifiable information is not clearly regulated. This program will discuss the current (and pending) measures in place to address these privacy concerns, as well as recent trends in litigation. In addition, it will offer some “best practices” for reducing potential liability in this new COVID -19 world. Further, this program will discuss the current state of the cyber insurance market and provide an overview of cyber insurance coverage trends, particularly in light of COVID -19.

    Truck Drivers and the Transportation Industry: The Public’s Perception Post COVID-19
    Attendees will hear from an industry claims director and assistant general counsel, the general counsel of the American Trucking Associations, and a seasoned trucking attorney regarding the changing perception of truck drivers and the trucking industry as a whole in light of COVID-19. The speakers will discuss in detail how the trucking industry responded to assist Americans in the midst of COVID-19, the recent press relating to truck drivers and the trucking industry as a result of how the trucking industry responded to COVID-19, and the educational opportunities for those working in the trucking industry (drivers, managers, lawyers, etc.) presented by this global health pandemic. Additionally, the speakers will discuss the ways in which the trucking industry and the legal profession can preserve and use the improved public perception of truck drivers and the trucking industry in the post-COVID-19 era to defend against a plaintiff’s claims, including during the discovery phase, during voir dire, and at trial.

    Construction Law Virtual Seminar

    We invite you to join us for DRI’s first-ever virtual seminar experience! This exciting event will capture everything you need to know about the current climate of the construction industry from the comfort of your office or home. The virtual seminar is available to DRI members for just $100 so don't miss this unique opportunity to learn and connect.

    The construction industry is not immune to the challenges and opportunities that confront other sectors of the economy, especially during the current social climate and pandemic. Women- and minority-owned businesses are one key to rebuilding the nation. The whole construction industry must cope with economic impacts and government regulations affecting construction projects during the pandemic. Construction businesses must be aware of constantly changing technology and the cyber risks accompanying that new technology. Layered onto the economic, social and health and safety concerns, there is the ever-changing climate and the need to take that into consideration, both in design and in construction. All attendees—construction professionals, attorneys, and claims professionals—will benefit from this forward-looking program as we address what is going on now, and what’s next for the construction industry. View the brochure.

    Shaping the Law to Meet the Challenges of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Litigation
    The presentation will discuss two types of ADAS cases: (1) those in which the plaintiff argues that the vehicle should have been equipped with ADAS sooner, and (2) those in which the plaintiff argues that ADAS should have performed better. Many authors and presenters on this topic have argued that when it comes to these cases the same legal defenses should apply in the same way they always have. This presentation will use Dashi v. Nissan N. Am., Inc., 247 Ariz. 56, 445 P.3d 13 (App. 2019), review denied (Jan. 7, 2020), as a jumping off point to discuss using novel applications of established legal theories to meet the challenges of ADAS cases. Rather than applying the same defenses in the same way, this presentation will suggest that the law needs to be shaped to meet the technology that will inevitably change the way we drive.
