Cybersecurity

Start of main content

The current process of accelerated digitalization of our societies has brought with it a growing and extensive regulation aimed at meeting the new security challenges that arise as we adapt to the new digital environment. In this context, cybersecurity has become a global risk that entails the progressive establishment of a regulatory framework at both European and national level.

Many companies are subject to regulatory compliance as operators of essential services and as digital service providers. In addition, there is also the importance of regulating aspects such as digital identity or the prosecution of online fraud. Regarding these matters and many other more disruptive ones, such as Artificial Intelligence, specific legal advice is necessary to avoid unfavorable legal consequences or liabilities of all kinds.

Therefore, at Andersen we provide a comprehensive service of legal advice on cybersecurity, with a fully specialized team that offers rigorous, cross-cutting and updated advice. We advise on digital security in order to protect companies, support their digital transformation processes and avoid or mitigate possible unfavorable legal consequences or liabilities of all kinds.
