Just as the internet has radically transformed business and social connections so has it presented new legal and compliance challenges for businesses. The convergence of e-commerce, IT security, privacy and other issues arising from our digital age continue to raise a host of business and legal concerns that are shaping the competitive landscape significantly. Understanding the material “must know” developments in the law due to the internet will go a long way to determine who is best positioned to safely exploit the opportunities. The topics are selected to focus both on external marketing and privacy developments as well as internal issues for a business such as the surveillance or discipline of employees using social media as well as the use of social media as a tool in recruiting. The course also includes a review of key remedies available to address domain name disputes as well as many kinds of website content conflict. Finally the course also reviews best practices for both the board of directors and the business as it prepares to address their cyber security obligations as well as developments in the rapidly expanding field of data breaches.
