Technology is liberating organisational and personal interactions from generations of constraints. The cloud, social media, new devices and new ways of creating and consuming content are altering how we work and live, and data is emerging as the critical point of differentiation in an increasingly competitive world. But government, chastened and emboldened since 2008, is regulating IT ever more closely – through sector specific regulation, IT standards, competition law and protection of consumers and personal data in online dealings, for example. At the conference, we will take an in-depth look at how intellectual property, contract law and general and sector specific regulation are evolving to meet the challenges and opportunities of the cloud, social media and data in an increasingly IT enabled business world.
