Conference on IT security as a challenge for the economy and the state

Forschungsstelle für Wirtschafts- und Medienrecht an der Universität Bayreuth (FWMR), Zentrum Digitalisierung. Bayern (ZD.B) und Betriebswirtschaftliches Forschungszentrum für Fragen der mittelständischen Wirtschaft e.V. (BF/M)

Given the use of IT in all sectors of economy and state, the protection of IT systems is an increasingly important issue. Without a functioning IT the economy and the state would not be able to function. IT security deficiencies can lead to large damages for companies and the society. Because of this, the German legislature has reacted with the IT Security Act and obliged operators of critical infrastructures to secure their IT systems. At European level, the legislative process to install an information security guideline is almost completed. The need for a secure IT in the economic and the public interest must be reconciled with economically viable and technically feasible measures. The conference is dedicated to the new rules from a scientific and practical point of view. The aim is in particular to address the implementation from the perspective of the sectors concerned and the cooperation with the government agencies. With speakers from academia, business and government a versatile access to the identified themes was chosen.
