INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL IT SECURITY OBLIGATIONS

For operators of critical infrastructures, such as energy suppliers, but also cloud providers, it is imminently clear that IT security also has a legal component. But also for other providers, such as SaaS (Software as a Service), online shops and web portals, it is important that the focus is not only on the technical aspects of IT security and the threat of cybercrime, but also on possible legal consequences and the corresponding risk minimisation.

As a law firm specialising in data protection, IT law and IT security law, Piltz Legal advises and accompanies you both in the analysis, drafting of appropriate security measures and contractual texts and in legal disputes. Moreover, with the corresponding technical and content-related understanding.

Our view is directed in three directions.

Firstly, the regulations vis-à-vis your customers, from the offer to the contracts, data protection declarations to service level agreements and software contracts.

On the other hand, your internal regulations, for example corresponding company guidelines, confidentiality agreements and contracts with subcontractors and IT partners.

And last but not least, legal risk minimisation against attacks by unauthorised third parties and precautions in the event of possible damage.

Our goal: to identify risk factors from a legal perspective and with an understanding of technology and to contribute in the best possible way to safeguarding your business.
