BCS launches IT law course

The British Computer Society has launched the Information Systems Examinations Board’s (ISEB) Foundation Certificate in IT Law to help computer professionals deal with contract, compliance and other issues.

The British Computer Society has launched the Information Systems Examinations Board’s (ISEB) Foundation Certificate in IT Law to help computer professionals deal with contract, compliance and other issues.

The new qualification’s syllabus has been designed for non-legal professionals and covers contracts, privacy legislation, digital evidence, intellectual property and copyright, employment, governance and accessibility.

Legal firm Pinsent Masons is the first accredited company to offer candidates the chance to take the course. The three-day course costs £800, with successful candidates receiving a recognised ISEB Foundation Certificate in IT Law.

Six Pinsent Masons' lawyers have been accredited to deliver and manage the course, led by partner Rosemary Jay, an information law specialist. Jay's team was previously involved in delivering the firm’s Freedom of Information Act course.

Jay said, “IT and law are fundamentally entwined, and for the IT professional, a basic knowledge of the law is now required.  Ignorance about legal rules can have a devastating effect on businesses.”

Said Jay, “The three-day course can save businesses unnecessary legal issues and costs. There is also the extra benefit of a recognised qualification to ensure quality and high standards in the training programme.”

The ISEB Foundation Certificate in IT Law syllabus can be found at:
