Is Your Institution’s Web Site Legal? [A7]


In this practical interactive session a mock Web site is provided and participants will be asked to spot where improvements should be made. It is IT Law for the non-lawyer and should have relevance for all those involved in information technology in an institution. Topics that the session will cover include Data Protection, Freedom of information, Human Rights, Intellectual property, e-Security as well as internet and e-mail monitoring and liability. The object is to highlight the common pitfalls, to evaluate the risks involved and to suggest actions that will assist universities and colleges to better manage their Web sites.
