Vedder Thinking | Events Michael Waters to Serve as Moderator at Investment Adviser Association’s 2017 Leadership Conference



October 4-6, 2017

Michael J. Waters, a Shareholder in Vedder Price’s Chicago office and member of the firm’s Litigation practice area, will participate in the Investment Adviser Association’s (IAA) 2017 Leadership Conference on October 4–6 in Chicago, IL. This year’s conference will focus on three main themes: assessing industry trends and implications, understanding the key drivers of growth, and integrating strategy and culture to create winning organizations.

Mr. Waters will moderate the session, “The Unholy Trinity of Digital Threats: What CEOs Need to Know about Cybersecurity, Anti-Money Laundering & Privacy.” The session aims to educate C-Suite executives on cybersecurity, anti-money laundering and information security in general, so that they can be more knowledgeable and essentially conversant about their own company’s security programs. Mr. Waters and two other industry professionals will highlight, among other things, risk assessments (where are the vulnerabilities vs. what’s already been done), incident response plans (how does the CEO get contacted and what are the C-Suite roles in the event of an issue), and regulator considerations (expectations and exam focus areas).
