Cryptocurrency: Separating the Good From the Bad
Ari Redbord, Head of Legal and Government Affairs, TRM Labs
Jesse Liu, Government Enforcement and White Collar Crime; Litigation , Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP and Affiliates

Over the last several months, cryptocurrency has been in the news – and not for many good reasons. It's become obvious that virtual currencies like bitcoin have become the underpinning of many cybercriminal operations, including ransomware. Recently, however, the FBI scored a success by clawing back part of the ransom that Colonial Pipeline paid by tracking one of the gang's digital wallets. Crypto does have it uses and many are thinking this is the future of currency.

To help us separate the good from the bad in cryptocurrency, I'm joined by two experts: Ari Redbord and Jessie Liu. As part of this exclusive events, we'll discuss: 

•   The current state of cryptocurrency and cybercrime;

•   A look at the FBI's new emphasis on stopping illegal crypto payments;

•   And what companies need to know from both a regulatory and legal standpoint.
