Crowell & Moring would like to invite government contractors to ring-side seats for the fight of the year – Congress v. the White House.  This year’s Ounce of Prevention Seminar (OOPS) will focus on the dynamic interplay between the opposite ends of Pennsylvania Avenue and how it will ultimately impact government contractors across the industry.  One issue of particular importance to both sides has been how to handle the ever-burgeoning cyber threat.  Our government contracts, privacy, and cybersecurity practitioners will tackle the hot issues head-on.  How is the Obama Administration addressing cyber risks?  What about the House and the Senate?  How will it all affect critical infrastructure?  How does the rise of the “Internet of Things” fit into the mix?  Join us on May 5-6 to engage in the debate on these and other questions.  We will see you there!  #cm2015oops

The keynote speaker in D.C. will be Professor Steven Schooner on the topic of ethics scandals in the last decade.  For information on the agenda and registration, please visit www.crowell.com/OOPS for the event in Washington, D.C.

NOTE: This program is solely intended for business executives and in-house counsel at government contractors; seating is limited.  Members of the media who are interested in participating should contact Kathryn Holmes Johnson at kholmesjohnson@crowell.com.  For general questions, please contact Katie Dougherty at kdougherty@crowell.com.
