Risks of Unprotected Browsing

will be presented by Dr John Selby


Whilst the Internet has become an essential part of our everyday lives, most Internet users (especially lawyers) are blissfully unaware of many of the risks they expose themselves to each day whilst browsing online - whether for work or personal purposes.

This seminar identifies and explains a range of harms that (unprotected) browsing of the Internet can cause to you, your legal practice and your clients, including: theft of client funds, corporate espionage, and being charged higher prices for goods and services that you buy online. It provides guidance on suitable tools which can help to mitigate some of those risks.
