The quality and accessibility of information via your IT solutions are key factors in your organisation’s core business operations. This means that resolving IT problems requires close cooperation between your technical experts, external service providers and your business. It is also essential for the board to pay attention to IT and privacy. Fragmented legislation and regulations – in combination with the dynamics of IT issues – make IT law complicated, since it is at the cutting edge of contract law, liability law, intellectual property law and criminal law. The most important provisions are given in various parts of the Dutch Civil Code such as Books 3, 6 and 7. And there are all kinds of independent laws too, some of which are based on EU Directives, such as the Personal Data Protection Act, the Public Procurement Act 2012 and the Copyright Act.
