Spring Series 2018: Cyber attacks – You have been hacked, now what?

Cybersecurity has become a buzzword at the moment and for good reason. Companies, banks and other financial institutions face constantly evolving cyber threats and the consequences from a major breach can be colossal, impacting not only data but networks and physical devices as well.

Legislators are reacting: privacy and cybersecurity laws are continually evolving, vary by jurisdiction, are interpreted unpredictably, and are in a constant state of flux. The fallout for not complying with industry standards or regulation can be serious: heavy fines, injunctions, government audits, lawsuits, and the potential for criminal liability, as well as harms to business reputation and business profits.

In this event, we will take a closer look at the challenges that affect German businesses from a privacy and cybersecurity, white collar and corporate law perspective, and discuss the benefits of cyber insurance policies.
