Attorneys examine cybersecurity and IP for webinar

As part of its Dykema Drives 2024 automotive trends webinar series, Dykema will present “Cybersecurity (Part I) and Intellectual Property (Part II)” on Thursday, May 9, from 1 to 2 p.m.

While survey results showed that ransomware and extortion tactics remain top cybersecurity concerns in the automotive industry, their prevalence has diminished, possibly due to increased investment in technologies. But with this growing emphasis on new technologies, the need for clear ownership and IP protection becomes paramount. AI's increasing role presents complex legal challenges for the automotive sector as well.

Speaking at the webinar will be Dykema’s Dante Stella, member, Detroit; Michelle Mayfield, associate, Detroit; Thomas Moga, member, Bloomfield Hills and Washington, D.C.; Cinthia Motley, member, Chicago; and Michael Word, member, Chicago.
