LegalTech West Coast kicks off June 24 at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles, promising two days chock-full of informative panels. The second day offers 11 panels within four tracks: information governance; mobility and security; cost control and efficiency; and investment/fund management compliance. 
The day begins with what should be a provocative keynote starting at 9 a.m. “Navigating Today’s Cyber Environment: How Secure Is Our Data?” panelists will discuss client confidentiality in light of National Security Agency surveillance of U.S. law firms revealed by Edward Snowden, as well as the technology available to protect firm and corporate data from malicious hackers. The program was inspired by Law Technology News’ April cover story by Editor-in-Chief Monica Bay, who will moderate the discussion. Panelists include Judy Selby, a partner at Baker & Hostetler; Ray Aghaian, a partner at McKenna Long & Aldridge; John Tomaszewski, a senior counsel at Seyfarth Shaw; Jason Ruger, the chief security officer at Motorola Mobility; and David Cunningham, the CIO at Winston & Strawn.
