Wiltshire & Grannis LLP partner Kent Bressie will chair the cybersecurity panel and the marine jurisdiction workshop at the Submarine Networks World Conference (long known as “SubNets”) to be held in Singapore September 10-12, 2013.  The cybersecurity panel will address cybersecurity risks and industry and government responses.  His fellow panelists will include senior industry executives and experts.  The marine jurisdiction workshop will address the impact of increasingly aggressive jurisdictional assertions by governments on the regulatory and permitting processes for undersea able installation and maintenance.

SubNets is the leading annual conference dedicated to the global undersea cable industry.  The conference features executives and opinion leaders from prominent global providers, with a particular focus on Asia.

Mr. Bressie is an expert on regulation of telecommunications, national security, and international trade and investment and leads Wiltshire & Grannis’s international practice.  He regularly represents undersea cable operators, wireline and wireless carriers, and infrastructure suppliers in all aspects of their businesses, including communications and environmental permitting, market access and foreign investment, national security and law enforcement, export controls and economic sanctions, and the law of the sea.
