Join us on Tuesday, September 17th at the Columbia Tower Club for our monthly ISACA Puget Sound chapter meeting.
Tech, Techlash, and Regulatory Uncertainty
Presenter: Dr. Joseph Williams
New technologies and how they challenge regulators, compliance officers, and the courts. As entrepreneurs hustle to create and deploy new technologies those very same technologies create enormous difficulties for public policy. A look at blockchain, privacy, and artificial intelligence as examples of how the State of Washington has struggled to find an appropriate balance between the common good and consumer protection.

Until May of this year Dr. Williams was Governor Jay Inslee’s tech industry policy advisor and served as Commerce’s director of economic development for the state’s tech industry.
