Increasingly, individuals and enterprises alike are dependant on technology usage. In this digital era, businesses need to be aware of laws that they not only need to comply with, but also to reduce their risk and exposure. This session will highlight the potential risks to the employer of not having adequate policies in place for usage of technology, including employment contracts, Internet and e-mail usage policies, and behavior at the workplace. The session will also briefly discuss on how businesses can deal with adverse situations that might arise out of potentially illegal usage/deployment of technology.
