Public Legal Education and Information (PLEI) is a means for you to gain access to education and development services (Canadian Bar Association n.d.; Department of Justice, 2015). Through these services, you have opportunities to receive personalized PLEI material to identify and share information about legal aspects to address your needs. We offer you opportunities to extend your legal and public knowledge. Benefits of this include that you can become more confident in your everyday life. You can take stock and undertake legal health checks. You could elect to become actively involved in the democratic processes of government, then shape legal policies and practices to assist others who may experience similar situations.
PLEI could provide opportunities for you to engage with the government, to shape regulatory and policy decisions. The benefits of PLEI to you include developing awareness about technology, security, personal and social agency, to lessen anxiety and other personal obstacles, and to participate fully in society (Nacos, 2002; United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, n.d.). The advantages of reinforcing and developing international networks are substantive (Editor, 2018a). These advantages often incorporate safety, prosperity, and sustainability. PLEI could assist you to comprehend and realise your legal rights and to address a variety of legal problems linked, for example, to technology, cyber security and counter terrorism (Byryne, 2014; LawforWA.org, 2016; LawforWA.org, 2012).
Individuals, organisations, and nations undertake activities to breach computers and networks to cause damage or interference (Editor, 2018b; Maiti, 2013; Wilson, 2009). Cyber security comprises approaches to safeguard computers, networks, and data from being targeted for attack or manipulation (Editor, 2018b). This has implications for a range of rights from freedoms of conscience and religion to life. It is beyond the scope of this web page to provide detailed definitions and characteristics of technology, PLEI, cyber security, and counter terrorism. In sum, PLEI could resolve problems that are linked to cyber security, and counter terrorism to advance safekeeping efforts.
