In today’s world, communication is instant and immediate. However, technological advancements bring with them a wide variety of new risks and problems. These could be:
· A throw away comment in an email forms part of a larger chain of communication, resulting in an allegation of libel from a competitor;
· An employee responsible for your social media channel makes a libelous statement about a competitor or individual;
· You inadvertently infringe the intellectual property rights of another party by sharing images or videos subject to copyright;
· Commercially sensitive information is accidentally emailed to another party, who are not intended to be privy to such information.
The examples are endless, but in short, as a company you are responsible for the content of your communications and those of your employees. In the event of a claim, have you any protection?
