Abstract: Due to the globally increasing number of cyber attacks, legislators in various countries have committed themselves to increasing legal regulation of cyber security.

In addition to the regulations in the EU, the question of the extent to which national and regional laws can influence the activities of companies and states worldwide will be raised.
