E-Security

We are Stibbe E-Security Specialists

As a cybercriminal can cripple a business, we help our clients setup their defences and support them should this happen.

E-Security

We work closely with our clients guiding them through complex E-Security legislation, and assist them with every aspect of cybercrime.

Our aim is to ensure our clients fully understand the legislative complexities that govern their security systems. It’s why we assist in translating statutory requirements and authorities’ guidelines into pragmatic solutions, delivering general prudence standards and providing assistance on security obligations in various regulatory frameworks.

In the above cases, we typically work alongside the IT security officers and assist in putting together the risk mitigation and communication plan. The excellent working relationships we have built with regulators and investigators are a key ingredient to the service we provide.

Should our clients’ IT systems be abused by hackers, cybercriminals or identity thieves, we deliver immediate support working seamlessly with our criminal law team.

Dat geldt niet alleen voor WhatsApp- en sms-berichten die staan op werktelefoons, maar ook voor berichten die staan op privételefoons van bestuurders of ambtenaren. Daarmee gaat de Afdeling terecht verder dan de rechtbank (ECLI:NL:RBMNE:2017:5979) in eerste aanleg, die van oordeel was dat de Wob niet van toepassing is op berichten op privételefoons.
