We live in the internet age, and doing business online—regardless of whether the business is partially or entirely online—presents unique challenges and opportunities. In light of the global trend overwhelmingly moving toward businesses of all kinds developing an online presence, every business lawyer needs to be proactively conversant in these issues. This new program analyzes the risks and opportunities deriving from an online business presence—including both the protection and risk relating to intellectual property rights, use and storage of personally identifiable information, online security, synthetic identity fraud, the proliferation of and risk inherent in accepting new cryptocurrencies, and use of third party technology resources.
Proactively limiting risk and maximizing opportunities from online activity requires counsel to be fluent in the interwoven—and competing—business, technical, and legal considerations. Identification of proactive filings with regulatory bodies, as well as the adoption of appropriate policies and procedures, and training of personnel can mitigate the likelihood and impact of problematic activities. Appropriate response to allegations of intellectual property infringement and security incidents can minimize potential damage. Learn how to draft and negotiate agreements between the company and third party technology resources that allocate responsibility and risk for compliance with these issues; help create response plans for anticipated risk; and respond efficiently and effectively to incidents.
Your clients cannot afford to operate without an internet presence; can you afford to practice without knowing the business, technical, and legal solutions?
