  • Thank you for being here and welcome. This is not the reaction that I hope I get from you. When considering attending a presentation by a lawyer talking about the law, many people think boring. I hope you enjoy the seminar and that you become more aware of [ICT/email/PPI] laws that ply to your organisation. Before we continue I’d like to get a better idea of the audience and who is here. Who is a director? Auditors and assurance providers?Any risk managers?How many CIOs or IT managers?How many compliance officers are there? How many Governance officers?Information Officers?IT Security officers?Are there any lawyers or legal advisors in the audience?
