Managing Corporate Risk in the Digital Economy
Matthew Karlyn, Partner, Foley & Lardner LLP

Over the past decade, companies have grown increasingly adept at sourcing large volumes of enterprise software services from an ever-increasing number of suppliers. The availability of digital technology has equipped companies with enterprise level software once available only to companies with massive resources. Today, companies large and small — from start-ups to the Fortune 100 — can integrate more technology into their business operations than ever before. This movement to more advanced technologies that were once considered out of reach is now a necessity for companies to compete in the ever growing and changing global economy. While these new technologies have a positive impact on business operations, they’ve also created management and legal issues across a spectrum of subjects including: data security and privacy; the ever-evolving need for comprehensive data security programs; complexities associated with increased connectivity; bankruptcy of suppliers; keeping the company’s information confidential; managing a growing number of suppliers; and contract management and terms. Join us for this session to understand where we’ve been, where we’re going and to gather best practices to manage this in today’s digital economy.
