Economic strength and international leadership are essential to advancing the United States’ goals in safeguarding national interests. Despite the persistent global threats like international conflicts, which pose significant concerns in national security, the national security regulation also continues to stretch its scope, now touching upon communications, data, and antitrust. Likewise, regulatory bodies carry on with their outlook on outbound investment screening.

Business leaders, policymakers and other practitioners concerned should stay updated on any developments in this field to understand the unique circumstances, opportunities and challenges it may bring.

Listen as experienced national security lawyers E. Patrick Gilman (Brown Rudnick LLP) and Sara L. Carlson (Defense Intelligence Agency) provide a comprehensive discussion of the recent developments and critical issues in national security law. Speakers, among other things, will offer practical tips and strategies for navigating this dynamic regulatory environment.

  • National Security Law: Current and Emerging Trends
  • Identified National Security Threats
