Join Robert Fitt and Jennifer Brenton for their webinar on 'The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2010 (RIPA): Covert Surveillance and Social Media'
Robert Fitt will provide an overview of RIPA: What is "covert surveillance"? What is "directed" versus "intrusive" surveillance? When is RIPA Authorisation required? What happens if the Prosecution have failed to obtain it?
Jennifer Brenton will address how RIPA applies to social media: How can information in the public sphere still be "private information"? When is investigation via the internet "covert"? At what point does the investigator cross the line into "surveillance"?
