reusch­law update – The new EU cyber­se­cu­ri­ty legis­la­ti­on in practice


Date 23.08.2023, 04:00-05:00 pm (CET)

The EU’s new cyber­se­cu­ri­ty legis­la­ti­on includes a wide ran­ge of new tech­ni­cal, orga­niza­tio­nal and legal requi­re­ments which com­pa­nies will have to imple­ment. The NIS‑2 Direc­ti­ve, which is alre­a­dy in force, affects broad sec­tions of the Ger­man eco­no­my and focu­ses expli­cit­ly on the sup­p­ly chain and with the pro­po­sed Cyber Resi­li­ence Act and other pro­duct legis­la­ti­on, cyber­se­cu­ri­ty will beco­me a basic ele­ment of pro­duct com­pli­ance. The super­vi­so­ry aut­ho­ri­ties will have exten­si­ve tools at their dis­po­sal for enforce­ment of the new requi­re­ments. In addi­ti­on to fines, for exam­p­le, they may issue public war­nings or exclude mana­ging direc­tors and manage­ment board mem­bers from manage­ment of the company. 

This will pose con­sidera­ble chal­lenges for com­pa­nies. This web­i­nar pro­vi­des an over­view of the new EU cyber­se­cu­ri­ty legis­la­ti­on, as well as pro­ven pro­ce­du­res and best prac­ti­ces to help com­pa­nies imple­ment the new requi­re­ments in practice.
