Cybersecurity M&A - Navigating US & Israeli Regulations

May 30, 2016 at 8:30am10:30am
Liliyot Restaurant, Beit Asia, 4 Weizmann Street, Tel Aviv

Please join us for an interactive breakfast seminar on navigating the complex web of risk posed by U.S. and Israeli regulations particularly as they affect cybersecurity-related mergers and acquisitions.

The seminar will be conducted by James Glasser and Tahlia Townsend, co-chairs of the International Trade Compliance group at Wiggin and Dana LLP (W&D), and Richard Mann, head of Mergers and Acquisitions at Gross, Kleinhendler, Hodak, Halevy, Greenberg & Co. (GKH). Tahlia and Jim advise some of the largest international companies in the world, including leading defense contractors, on U.S. economic sanctions and export regulations, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and related matters, and Richard has advised acquirers and targets in many of the most significant cybersecurity transactions in recent years.


Viewed through the lens of risks arising in cybersecurity M&A deals, the seminar will cover disentangling encryption regulations, complying with data privacy requirements, dealing with the long arms of U.S. economic sanctions and attendant successor liability risks, and technology controls applicable to cross-border cyber product collaboration, sale, and M&A.

In addition, if you or your clients are shopping for a U.S. cyber acquisition or hoping to sell cyber to the US government or its primes, the panel will flag key traps for the unwary, including a reminder about the Commitee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CFIUS).
