In its Global Risks Report for 2016, the World Economic Forum states that one of the most serious global risks facing the world today is the risk of cyberattacks. The fact that a cyberattack can disable vital systems at local and global levels has made the cyber sector (both offensive and defensive) one of the hottest industry of the decade.

Technological developments and the global shift towards digital management increases the chance of cyberattacks on organizations and countries. According to the aforementioned report, crimes in cyberspace have cost the global economy more than USD 450 billion per annum.

 

The leading global players in the cyber-security sector include the United States, Israel, China and Russia. The Israeli cyber-security industry is the second largest in the world, after the United States, with more than 400 active Israeli cyber companies, some specializing in offensive capabilities, others in defensive capabilities.

 

Barnea & Co.’s technology department has been providing business and legal counseling in the cyber sector for more than a decade, as well as ongoing legal assistance in relation to all cyber-related hardships facing companies and organizations.

 

Barnea & Co.’s comprehensive advisory services to companies include guiding them through the processes of formulating their basic legal framework, mapping risks and building policies and rules for contending with these risks.

 

When cyber companies face crises, our firm provides an immediate response and comprehensive legal support, including thwarting of the crisis on its get go and managing the entire process until a solution is reached. Our firm also provides the support needed in order to resolve the associated legal aspects, to analyze the crisis, draw conclusions and prepare for any future potential crisis.

 

The cyber industry is, by nature, a global industry. As a law firm with expertise in providing ongoing legal counsel to companies whose operations are characterized by international aspects and close cooperation with international cyber companies, Barnea & Co. (with its worldwide affiliations) also places emphasis on handling cyber aspects beyond the borders of the State of Israel.
