Cyber Security: Legal challenges and strategic recommendations for companies in the European and German market
Legislators in Europe and Germany are currently trying to counter insufficient cybersecurity measures in companies or products with a growing number of legal requirements. In addition to the technical risks of inadequate cybersecurity, companies are therefore increasingly exposed to legal risks. The latter can result, for example, in fines, claims for damages or even the ban of products.
To counter these risks, companies need a cybersecurity compliance management system to bundle the difficult-to-understand number of legal requirements in a meaningful way and to define uniform IT security requirements. Stefan Hessel uses practical examples to explain which legal requirements exist for cybersecurity on the European and German market and how these can be implemented with the help of cyber security compliance management.
