Abstract provided by presenter:
The activities of certain States on the internet are now well-publicised, with many “experts” now publishing not just opinions, but also papers outlining investigations they have been running independently. The purpose of this presentation is to provide some background to the current situation, clarify some of the language that is being (over) used and then spend some time looking at what reactions there have been from both Government and Industry, and the ramifications of each. The presentation will then focus on the legal sector, providing sanitised case studies and experiences to date when dealing with these issues, and finish up by looking forward at how these threats can be managed into the future.
