Cyber Litigation: The Legal Principles cover

Description

Cyber Litigation: The Legal Principles brings together the existing legal principles in this rapidly developing area of law whilst at the same time considering the latest challenges facing practitioners and corporate advisers.

The authors have surveyed the legal landscape to identify bespoke approaches to the issues involved.

The book looks at the most common causes of action in cyber litigation, including 'cybercrime', IP, data protection breaches, and conflict of laws considerations. It analyses the situations where cyber-related litigation requires a new approach and looks at the remedies available. It covers cyber litigation and regulatory enforcement action, as well as alternatives to litigation such as the NCA Prevent scheme, Deferred Prosecution Agreements and Civil Recovery. It describes situations where arbitration or mediation are mandated, as well as online dispute resolution and technology powered alternatives to traditional determination.

Readers will benefit from the use of flowcharts, tables, checklists and case studies to provide a clear understanding of the processes involved, as well as legal analysis of significant cases, an insight into what constitutes 'data', and legal analysis and commentary on potential legal arguments that may arise in cyber litigation.

Cyber Litigation: The Legal Principles is an essential title for all practitioners involved in commercial disputes, information technology professionals, data protection officers, compliance staff and technologists with a legal interest.
