Description:

The Summit will focus on four key areas:

  • Employers’ Liability - What’s new? 

A look at recent decisions of interest on employer's liability issues, including the Supreme Court decision in Kennedy v Cordia Services. This decision considers, in particular, the scope of a duty to carry out risk assessments, and provides guidance on the instruction of expert witnesses. The position on vicarious liability for the acts and omissions of employees will also be discussed from a Scottish perspective in the light of recent Supreme Court decisions.

  • Think Cyber - Think Resilience: How to do Business Safely in a Digital Landscape

The Scottish Government’s Cyber Resilience Strategy encourages businesses to prepare for; withstand; rapidly recover; and learn from a deliberate cyber-attack or accidental event. BTO’s dedicated Data Protection Defence team will give you advice on the pre-emptive steps to take to make your business cyber-resilient. It will also provide guidance on how to respond to a data incident and any subsequent regulatory investigation.

  • Secondary Victims - Does the law reflect the times? 

In the era of the smartphone and the tablet, technology has revolutionised the manner in which information is given and received in real time. This approach is relevant in assessing the law on secondary victims, an area which has historically developed in a piecemeal manner. BTO will explore potential ways in which the law may evolve given the evolution of technology, social media and the means by which accidents are witnessed by persons who may, in the future, be considered a secondary victim.

  • Health and Safety Update - Individuals in the Dock 

BTO’s specialist Health and Safety team will provide you with a useful update on HSE investigations and prosecutions in Scotland, looking particularly at the increasing number of individuals, at both management and employee level, who are finding themselves in the dock.

Venue: The Old Library at Lloyd’s of London, One Lime Street, EC3M 7HA (Location map).
