Cyber Secu­ri­ty: Legal chal­lenges and stra­te­gic recom­men­da­ti­ons for com­pa­nies in the Euro­pean and Ger­man market


Date ,

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.

Pro­duct cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­ons play an important role for com­pa­nies. Intertek’s goal is not only to cer­ti­fy your pro­ducts, but to do so in the most time and cost-efficient way for you. Inter­tek experts, such as Ste­phen Mor­gan, have the expe­ri­ence and exper­ti­se to ensu­re that your pro­ducts are cyber-secure. Start­ing with the design/development pro­cess, through to pene­tra­ti­on and vul­nerabi­li­ty test­ing, Inter­tek can pro­vi­de simp­le intro­duc­tion ser­vices or com­pre­hen­si­ve cyber secu­ri­ty cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­ons. This is how you prepa­re your pro­ducts for the cur­rent and upco­ming regu­la­to­ry chan­ges, rest assu­red with Intertek.
