The Bar Council Cyberlaw Committee, in collaboration with the Bar Council Continuing Professional Development (“CPD”) Department, is proud to present the Cyber Law Upskilling Series. This series is aimed at helping participants understand contemporary issues related to the intersection of law and cyberspace.

The management of physical contracts remains a labour-intensive, and at times, inefficient task. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought about a major shift in the way companies do business, and has also resulted in the abrupt transition to working remotely. Therefore, it is more important than ever for companies to accelerate the digitalisation of their operations and business.

An integral part that needs to be looked at is contracting, as contracts are a necessity and touch all aspects of a business. However, with the digitalisation of contracts, various issues will arise, such as digital authentication, data security, and data protection.

In this CPD Live webinar, participants will explore the differences between physical contracts and digitalised contracts, the laws facilitating digital contracts, and the possible issues arising from the digitalisation of business processes.
