Cyber security: Resiliency by Shoosmiths

In the digital age, cyber security and system resiliency are not just technology issues, they’re legal ones too. 

Cyber security

The legal landscape is adapting to the ever-evolving cyber threats and the cost of cybercrime is predicted to hit £8.4 trillion by 2025. In addition to cyber threats, as we become ever more reliant on digital infrastructure to power our critical infrastructure, laws aimed at strengthening the way in which organisations embed resiliency into their infrastructure, information processing systems and connected devices has become a priority for law makers.

In Europe, with the advent of new cyber resiliency frameworks, including the NIS2 Directive (NIS2) the Digital Operational Resiliency Act (DORA) and the Directive of Resiliency of Critical Entities (CER) and, the soon to be passed, Cyber Resiliency Act (CRA) (to name but a few), the regulatory landscape has adapted in way which places InfoSec at the forefront of an organisation’s legal and risk posture. Navigating this complex and continually shifting landscape presents a sizeable challenge for organisations moving into 2024 and beyond.
