Companies will be liable for any cyber attacks that others commit "for their benefit" under legislative plans approved by the European Parliament's Civil Liberties Committee.
The Committee overwhelmingly voted to approve proposals to criminalise certain activity relating to cyber attacks last week. The proposals contain plans to make specified "legal persons" within companies liable for certain offences.
