Seminar Description

If you have a Web site the law says you now have the legal liabilities of a publisher and are liable for libel, along with slander, copyright infringement, defamation, invasion of privacy, trademark violation, and other emerging exposures related to operating on the Web. You can even be held accountable for rogue employees posting in chat rooms, on blogs or social media sites.

If you send email and it contains a virus, Trojan horse, keylogger, malware or anything that harms, crashes, or takes down someone else’s system, you can be held responsible for the problems you accidentally created.

If you store customer information on a server or use an outside party to host your Web site, process credit cards sales, store data, or fulfill orders – the information sits as a tempting target to hackers who could steal it – and while they may get away with their crime, you could be sued by your injured customers. There are other ways to lose business and personal information; a company laptop could be stolen or accidentally left in a cab or restaurant. Customers could sue if their information is disclosed or misused. The cost of just one legal action could be catastrophic.

Gain a greater understanding of this evolving business trend as well as methods to analyze and mitigate your risk by attending this timely workshop.
