A2 Level ICT WGS

Week 9: 13.6 Legal Aspects

I hope everyone had a good half term break. Now, on with the work! The section we’re going to start this week covers the Legal Aspects of ICT. Much of the basics of the legislation was covered at AS – and perhaps it’s a good idea to visit the material currently on the AS blog as a revision exercise. We’re going to briefly┬árevisit the section on Data and Security as background material.

The first part of the A2 material shows that we should:

  • Understand the need for a corporate information system security policy and the r├┤le it would fill within an organisation. Factors could include prevention of misuse, detection, investigation, procedures, staff responsibilities, disciplinary procedures.
  • Describe the content of a corporate information system security policy.
  • Describe methods of improving awareness of security policy within an organisation, cross-referencing to training and standards.

A set of notes on this section (with acknowledgement to antonine-education and the fatmax website) is available. Please add to them as we work through the various parts.
