SPEAKERS
Ted Hamilton, Wetherington Hamilton, Tampa, FL

This program will review different types of business email compromise and discuss the legal liability for any resulting loss.  It will review applicable legal principles and examine the latest case law addressing the issue.  It also will present ways to minimize or avoid these types of losses.
