Dr Thea Voogt's research  focuses on whether the pervasiveness of information technology and information technology risk has changed virtually every aspect of business and thereby also the statutory duty of care and diligence of all directors as set out in s 180 of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth). Her project examines if directors’ statutory duty of care and diligence has broadened due to information technology and its resultant risk, in much the same way as corporate governance measures, risk management, ongoing disclosure and financial literacy requirements have changed the way that directors go about their business as a consequence of corporate collapses and the global financial crisis.
