Legal Committee Video Conference: Legal and Technical Issues of E-Meeting Legislations
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Thailand enacted e-meeting legislations in April and May 2020 to allow and facilitate e-meetings of committees of government offices, and directors, shareholders and members of businesses and non-profit organizations. When put into practice, these legislations have created legal and technical challenges for all concerned mainly because notices, minutes and other documentation and information of e-meetings must still be prepared, notified and maintained. The conducting of each e-meeting must also be carried out via an e-meeting control system that complies with the e-meeting security standards and the information security standards prescribed under the e-meeting legislations. Speakers of this video conference will discuss the key requirements and challenges of these legislations and offer some possible solutions from both legal and technical perspectives.
