Food and drinks will be provided. 1 Law Society of Hong Kong CPD point has been accredited. New York and California Approved Jurisdiction policy may apply.

TOPIC: International Cybercrime: The Law Enforcement Dimension

Ron Cheng, a partner at O'Melveny & Myers, and former cyber prosecutor for eight years in the U.S. Department of Justice, will speak on:

  • Current state of cybercrime (including ransomware and the "Wannacry" attacks, as well as business email compromises)
  • The types of cybercrimes typically investigated by law enforcement agencies
  • How evidence is gathered in cybercrime investigations
  • Challenges for law enforcement in investigating current cybercrime trends
  • Considerations for a company victim when responding to a law enforcement investigation

The discussion will include several U.S. cybercrime cases, including an international phishing fraud against major U.S. banks conducted in both Egypt and the U.S., and an investigation of "hack-for-hire" websites that offered to steal email account passwords for a fee.

SPEAKER: Ron Cheng, Partner, O’Melveny & Myers

Ron Cheng is a leader in the Firm’s White Collar and Data Privacy practices. He handles data security matters involving a variety of breach situations, including business email compromises, distributed denial of service (DDOS) attacks, and internal compromises.

Ron is one of very few Mandarin-speaking attorneys with experience in both U.S. and Chinese criminal law enforcement. He spent 20 years as a federal prosecutor, serving in a number of roles at the Department of Justice including: Chief of the Criminal Appeals Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California; resident legal advisor to the U.S. Embassy in Beijing; and acting Chief and Deputy Chief of the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California. Most recently Ron has been a key member of the Cybercrime and Intellectual Property Crimes Section at the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California, where he has focused on criminal activity arising out of the Asia-Pacific region and handled significant multinational digital privacy cases. Ron maintains a blog on Forbes, in which he writes on data privacy and corruption issues. He also contributed to an analysis of China’s proposed Cyber Security Law.
