Cyber-security is becoming an emerging field of legal research and practice as well. From the European perspective the development is framed by adoption of Directive (EU) 2016/1148 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 6 July 2016 concerning measures for a high common level of security of network and information systems across the Union (NIS Directive) setting standard for cyber-security within all Member states. One of the crucial aspects of cybersecurity concerning information is privacy.

The aim of the workshop is to identify aspects of overlap between NIS Directive and GDPR and address the practical issues arising from the legislation. Particularly, the attention shall be devoted to provisions regulating security in NIS Directive and GDPR and reporting of security incidents / personal data breach.

The event is organised within the implementation of the Jean Monnet Network „European Union and the Challenges of Modern Society (Legal Issues of Digitalization, Robotization, Cyber Security and Prevention of Hybrid Threats) Project id: 611293-EPP-1-2019-1-CZ-EPPJMO-NETWORK.
