Public/Products Liability for IT Professionals

Internet-related professional exposures for Information Technology (Internet) Professionals arise from services provided to clients such as web site development, but can also arise from damage a professional can cause to a client's systems resources. This latter exposure includes virus transmission and loss of data. In addition, professional exposures can extend beyond traditional economic loss to contingent bodily injury or property damage for some professionals.

Media exposures arise from intellectual property, defamation and invasion of privacy claims. The intellectual property exposures, such as copyright or trademark infringement, are an unpredictable and rapidly evolving area because the law as it applies to the Internet is not clearly defined. For example, no clear definition has been established for standards of copyright infringement. Does a link from another site to your content infringe on your copyrights? The litigation involving Internet-based music sharing is delving into this new territory.

Security breaches are another area of significant exposure for companies involved with the Internet. The introduction of viruses and unauthorized access are well known examples. Theft of data and extortion are less publicized but equally important exposure areas. Recently, privacy issues related to e-commerce initiatives have gained national prominence, and employee actions have become a significant source of security breaches.
