Cyber attacks have wreaked havoc on organizations in nearly every industry sector. C-suites and boards of directors alike rank this issue to be of the highest concern — and for good reason. From the technology sector to financial services, cyber criminals have made it clear that no entity is immune. In today’s interconnected world, cybercrime targets go beyond those that maintain personal information; many entities are targeted for other confidential information they hold. Media reports of the staggering number of increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks attest to an upward trend in cybercrime, and the events of the last few years have dwarfed earlier hacking incidents.
There has been significant activity by the U.S. government to take measures designed to prevent or mitigate cybersecurity incidents. Highlights of U.S. government activities in this area include the Cybersecurity Act of 2015 and various cyber-related Executive Orders. State governments also are playing a leading role in seeking to combat cyber crime. Other countries, such as the European Union and China, have taken significant steps to respond to the critical threat posed by cyber crime.
To keep up with the rapidly evolving legal landscape in this field, companies need to be informed not only about the risks they face, but also about policy pronouncements and legislation that could affect how they do business. A thorough understanding of this area is particularly important for companies that have not previously been in cyber attackers’ crosshairs and need to consider strategies to confront these sophisticated and persistent threats.
