We don't know what we need to know about IT laws and regulations!
Laws and regulations governing our use of online business systems and networks have never been just the preserve of lawyers but involves everyone across the organisation, from boardroom directors through top managers to project teams and individual members of staff who simply need to get online in order to perform their duties.
Laws and regulations are complicated at the best of times, but add into the mix the sophistication of digital technology, online business processes, information governance and mobile staff, and a quad-mire of issues and challenges arise which can stop you from taking the calculated commercial risks that matter.
This Guide aims is to empower you with good quality information to help support your decision-making as well as enable you to interact better with board members, legal teams and other relevant colleagues. Written for non-lawyers, the Guide helps to make IT laws and regulations more transparent across the organisation and to seek out competitive and collaborative advantage through best practice.
We've detailed around 120 of the most important UK rules, what they mean, how they affect your organisation and where you can go for further help and advice. The Guide does not provide a comprehensive list of legislation, but it has been carefully put together and is reviewed regularly.
We've divided up the information into suitable chapters for ease-of-use. However, you must remember that many of the laws and regulations identified are interwoven with each other and address many different aspects of doing business electronically. One size never fits all!
We trust this Guide will be an important item in your due diligence tool kit and a handy source of reference in meetings and for your own professional use.
We have make all reasonable efforts to provide you with accurate information in this Guide. However, the authors do not accept any responsibility for any actions you take which rely upon the information provided. You must always seek professional legal advice to fit your individual circumstances.
