Cybersecurity Law

Book description

This book gives insight into the legal aspects of data ownership in the 21st century.

With the amount of information being produced and collected growing at an ever accelerating rate, governments are implementing laws to regulate the use of this information by corporations. Companies are more likely than ever to face heavy lawsuits and sanctions for any misuse of information, which includes data breaches caused by cybercriminals.

This book serves as a guide to all companies that collect customer information, by giving instructions on how to avoid making these costly mistakes and to ensure they are not liable in the event of stolen information.
