About the Event

Aimed at deterring, preventing, and mitigating harm caused to individuals by digital communications, and providing victims of harmful digital communications with a quick and efficient means of redress, the Harmful Digital Communications Act, or HDCA, has been part of our law for almost 7 years. But how well is the legislation working, and is it meeting its stated purposes?

With coverage of the principles, offence provisions, civil and criminal procedures and case law, as well as delving into how the HDCA is working and issues arising, this webinar will provide a valuable update for those dealing with matters under it.

Learning outcomes:

  • Develop a better understanding of the offence provision (s 22) and revenge porn provision

  • Gain insights into its shortcomings, issues that have arisen, and its future.
