Information Technology Law Definition

Lawyers in the information technology practice area deal with many aspects of a technology-centric world.

Security is a worry for individuals and businesses alike and no longer is information security an afterthought in the era of cyber-threats, big-data breaches and information terrorism. Information security management has emerged as a critical component of modern business and IT lawyers advise on regulatory obligations and corporate responsibilities; the proper use of security standards; security audits; IT management and governance.
Privacy is a critical part of the information age, as well. IT lawyers provide advice on privacy rights and obligations under the myriad provincial, federal, and international privacy and personal information protection laws, develop privacy policies, act in privacy-related disputes, and address privacy issues as they intersect with other areas of law.
Advising on compliance with the Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL), is also part of an IT lawyer’s practice, as well as negotiating agreements for cloud computing. Cloud computing can transform organizations by providing new IT functionalities which reduce costs and proliferate access to information, but security, compliance with a customer’s legal obligations, and planning an agreement that clearly reflects the parties’ requirements, as well as the type and sensitivity of data migrated to the cloud database, can be challenging.

In addition, IT lawyers handle commercial transactions for mobile and electronic payment platforms, advise on software and product development agreements, advise on online sales and e-commerce issues, and negotiate agreements for software and technology licensing, distribution, and system acquisitions.

Most IT lawyers act for both customers or suppliers and so they need to have a broad knowledge of all aspects of the technology industry. They must be able to combine their drafting and negotiating skills with a strong business acumen in order to successfully guide their clients through the minefield that can be a technology deal.
