Questa è stata l’ultima di una serie di terremoti disastrosi verificatisi in Italia negli ultimi anni. Il Paese è particolarmente soggetto al rischio sismico in quanto e situato in una zona in cui le placche continentali entrano in collisione ed il patrimonio edilizio è vulnerabile.

    12 May 2017

    Cyber threats are evolving rapidly due to the growing digital transformation of society, the widespread use of internet-enabled devices and processes, and the changing profile of hackers. Recent high-profile cyber attacks demonstrate that the extent of associated possible losses is also broadening, increasingly comprising both physical and financial damage relating to data privacy breaches and to companies’ tangible and intangible assets, and also business interruption costs. As a result, the issue of cyber protection is rising up the corporate agenda, at both large and small
    companies.

    Cyber liability: Data breach in Europe (PDF, 3.59mb)

    08 March 2017

    This publication written by Elena Jelmini Cellerini and Christian Lang looks at the consequences of a data breach in Europe
    and compares the situations in Europe and the US with regard to the
    major features of such an event. It provides a snapshot of where the
    discussion stands at the beginning of 2017, about one and a half years
    before the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
    will come into force. Watching the case law developing, in particular in
    the UK which has taken some landmark decisions in this area, is also
    an indicator for where Europe seems to be heading. The UK intends to
    implement the GDPR in spite of Brexit.
