Up One Level



The UK Protection from Harassment Act 1997 makes provision for protecting people from harassment and 'similar conduct'. It states that a person must not carry out actions which amount to harassment, or which they know may be regarded by the other person as harassment.

Claimants of harassment may be awarded damages for any anxiety caused by the harassment. An additional offence relates to putting the fear of violence on a person

In terms of Information Security, harassment by e-mail or via chat rooms may be punishable under this law.
