Realise the benefits of Internet technologies, while ensuring your company is protected from the associated risks!
An effective risk management strategy is vital to your company's survival
Internet technologies have revolutionised the way that business is conducted. However, these innovations expose your business to various risks. Inadequate security can lead to the theft of customer data and, in the event of technological failure or a cyberattack, your business could lose its ability to function altogether. An effective risk management strategy is, therefore, vital to your company's survival.
Understand the origins of cyber risks and develop suitable strategies for their management

Covering the relevant legislation on information security and data protection, the author combines his legal expertise with a solid, practical grasp of the latest developments in IT to offer a comprehensive overview of a highly complex subject.
Expert guidance examining the operational and technological risks
Drawing on interviews with experts from Clifford Chance, Capgemini and Morgan Stanley amongst others, the book examines the operational and technological risks alongside the legal and compliance issues. This book will be invaluable to lawyers and accountants, as well as to company directors and business professionals.

Understand and manage the technological risks This book looks at the security issues surrounding Cloud computing, and highlights the problems that have arisen as a result of the use of laptop computers and memory sticks for remote working. Implementing a risk management framework will offer reassurance to your existing customers and improve your chances of winning new business.
Familiarise yourself with the legal issues You need to be aware of the laws that govern your activities when you do business online.
