Cyber Security: Law and Practice

By Dean Armstrong, Dan Hyde, Sam Thomas

Cyber security and data management are among the biggest issues facing businesses and organisations today. The law faces huge challenges to keep up with the rapid development of technology which provides opportunities for the misuse of computers for commercial gain or other reasons. This new work covers the vast spectrum of law, both civil and criminal, as it applies to data control, data management, and cyber issues. It considers the legal implications of internal threats from employees, data mismanagement, and inadequate software, together with external threats from competitors or criminals, and looks at practical ways to deal with potential or actual cyber incidents. The work concludes by looking at the potential impact of Brexit on data management and control, and the significance of the impending General Data Protection Regulation. It has been fully updated in light of the latest developments. [Subject: Cyber Crime, Cyber Security, Civil Law, Criminal Law]
