Cryptzone is proud to be a founding member of the International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP), who have invited Ken Nakata, Director, Accessibility Consulting Practice to present an investigation into the laws impacting website design for persons with disabilities and the standards that should be met.

In today’s complex world, your website must comply with many accessibility and privacy requirements. Adhering to these regulations and standards not only reduces risk of litigation, but also drives customer satisfaction. Yet, as the number of content contributors and various web development teams expand, your websites can grow increasingly out of control. In fact, most companies don’t even know how many live web pages they have at any given moment, let alone if their websites comply with regulations and organizational standards.

So how do you educate your content contributors on your standards?

Ken Nakata will discuss what you need to know to protect your business in an IAAP webinar on Tuesday January 31, 2017 11:00 AM EST – Register now. In addition to providing details on applicable accessibility laws and corresponding litigation, Ken will provide practical steps you can take to ensure your expanding web properties are providing equal access to each and every one of your users. You will learn how the standard, called Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 AA, can be applied to bring your website into compliance, and the varying approaches that different types of organizations can take to face their unique challenges. Understanding and complying with these regulations not only protects you from serious fines and penalties, it has been shown to improve overall user satisfaction and customer loyalty.
