2018 has been the year of the cyber-scandal. From social media controversies to intellectual property theft, as well as countless digital campaigns against corporations and individuals, a plethora of prominent stories have been in the news and they are only the tip of the Internet iceberg in terms of the number of lurking issues out there in cyberspace. Employee online etiquette, pressing privacy concerns, protecting intellectual property, and developing a plan to respond to data thefts are just a few of the numerous areas in which cyber-ethics overlaps with cyber security and Internet law in important, yet complicated, ways. Having the right policies and procedures in place can advance your organization’s strategic goals while guarding against defamation lawsuits and cyber-crimes.

Please join Dr. James Castagnera as he helps you navigate the ethical and legal issues that arise in cyberspace, helping you balance the organization’s rights and goals against those of your employees and other affected individuals.
