Cybersecurity trends and issues: European Union


07 February 2020

Tech, Data, Telecoms & Media European Union

Cybersecurity is a major focus area for governments worldwide. In the wake of new and enhanced legislation and policies to mitigate cyber risk, compliance in this regard is high on the agenda for many companies.

In this series, ILO caught up with some of our leading specialists around the world to discuss the key cybersecurity issues that affected their jurisdiction in 2019 and what to expect in 2020. 

Companies are ever more aware of cyber risks, new EU legislation has been introduced in this regard and national authorities have developed improved enforcement activities. As a result, cybersecurity looks set to become a board-level issue across the European Union due to the increased liability and reputational risks for companies.

In the below video, Constantin Herfurth discusses the benefits and risks of the digital transformation of business and what companies need to do to protect themselves.
