Master Class – Cyber security: global trends in legal rules, insurance and incident response

Recent reports of Chinese hacks using microchips planted in server motherboards, Russian attacks on the Dutch OPCW and Google data breaches all underline the continuing importance of implementing sound cyber security practices. In this Master Class, Richard van Staden ten Brink and Remon van Saane will update you on how to advise your organisation on the legal aspects of preparing for and dealing with cyber security incidents.

Cyber security has become more regulated. Examples include the recently adopted Dutch Cybercrime Act III (Wet computercriminaliteit III) which authorises Dutch enforcement agencies to take down illegal content and hack networks and devices to investigate cybercrime. Also, the Dutch Cyber Security Act (Cybersecuritywet) has entered into force, introducing several additional notification requirements.

In addition to regulation, there is increased cooperation between government and private industry when dealing with cyber security incidents. Businesses are also increasingly choosing to purchase insurance against cyber security incidents.

This Master Class will be held at our offices in Amsterdam on Thursday, 1 November from 8:00 to 10:00. Of course a delicious breakfast will be awaiting you when you arrive. Please note that our Master Classes are based on invitation only.
