Cybersecurity

  • About this practice area

    Cybersecurity is becoming increasingly important. Not so long ago, neither entrepreneurs nor public entities considered cybersecurity a priority. Nowadays, however, in the era of cloud-based solutions, remote work, and an information-based economy, data protection has become a key issue. Polish and EU legislators have responded accordingly. The need to ensure information and data security is triggering more and more regulatory measures. The regulations that apply to ICT systems processing data have also been expanded.
