Creating an E-Safety Policy The SWGfL Template E-Safety Policies have been adopted by local authorities, schools and academies across the UK, and are acknowledged as good practice documents. The latest versions have been updated following review and support by a Local Authority Audit Team. The templates provide guidance, an indication of what should be included and a flexible approach allowing each school or organisation to challenge, consider and debate. The result will be your very own E-Safety Policy that whilst built on foundation blocks, includes content that makes it unique and relevant for your school or organisation. The SWGfL Template Policies consist of an overall E-Safety Policy and a series of appendices with more detailed template policies and forms.

CYBER LAW Liability of Cyber Cafe Operators | Law Teacher Various risks are inherent in the role of a Cyber Cafe operator. However, considering their importance in this cyber age, it is imperative that their business must go on. There have been various cases in India where cyber cafe owners have been put behind bars for the misuse of their computer systems by their customers, when we kept wondering why the innocent cyber cafe owner was being made liable for the offence committed by his customers. Cyber cafes have always acted as an easy medium for the commission of illegal activities in cyberspace and Cyber Cafe operators have many times been implicated for the acts of their customers. In the first week of January, 2009, several mails were sent to some of the IT companies of Bangalore, from a Cyber Cafe, threatening terrorist attacks. There have been many such instances in the past where Cyber Cafes have been used, as a medium, for either real or false terrorist communication. It may also be defined as absolute due diligence Good Neutral Poor
