New Cyber Security Decree
On 28 May 2018, a new Decree became effective on security measures, cyber security incidents, reactive measures and on the requirements for filings in cyber security (Decree on Cyber Security) No. 82/2018 Coll., which repeals and replaces previous Decree No. 316/2014 Coll. The new Decree is in response to Directive 2016/1148 concerning measures for a high common level of security of network and information systems across the European Union. Unlike the previous Decree, the amended Decree pays more attention to practical, every-day issues. A number of terms which were been addressed sufficiently or were not addressed at all are explained in separate sections. The New Decree also contains a list of data destruction methods, or vulnerabilities and threats, or sophisticated content rules regarding contracts concluded with major IT suppliers.
