Cyber Security Incidents – How to Avoid Legal Risks in Germany and Switzerland?

Latham & Watkins will present a webcast to discuss the common practices for management in Germany and Switzerland, on June 10 in German and June 17 in English.

Cyber attacks are an increasing threat to most German and Swiss companies. Awareness of the risks posed by cyber crime is growing steadily and from a legal standpoint, there are some challenges. These also raise questions about the responsibility and liability of management when cyber attacks, or similar incidents, occur.

You will gain insights into the following topics:

  • General introduction to cyber security incidents and resulting legal risks
  • Examples of current cyber attack cases in Germany and Switzerland

  • Mastering the challenges of enforcing cyber security regulations
  • Responsibility and liability of management in the event of cyber security incidents
