Legal Business: Cyber space – fighting fraudsters in a brave new world

Partner Sinead O’Callaghan has contributed an in-depth article on how to fight fraud in the age of the internet and social media to this year’s Disputes Yearbook published by Legal Business magazine.

As cyber crime continues to hit the headlines, English courts are starting to adapt the traditional remedies used to tackle tech-heavy disputes. Sinead’s article explores briefly the current legislative framework regulating cyber space, and then questions how English civil law and its remedies can keep pace with, and adapt to new challenges posed by, developments in technology, and be used to assist victims of cyber crime to bring claims to help recover their losses.
