Implemented amendment to French Code of Consumers introducing cybersecurity audit for digital platforms

The amendment introducing a cybersecurity audit for digital platforms in the French Code of Consumers is implemented. In particular, the law targets the operators of "online platforms" (defined as any legal person offering an online public communication service based on the algorithmic classification of third parties' content or the connection of several parties selling goods or exchanging content) and the operators providing interpersonal communications services not based on a numbering system whose activity exceeds a threshold established by decree. Such operators must conduct a cybersecurity audit concerning data security and localization. In particular, the audit shall be carried out by audit service providers licensed by the National Agency for Information Systems Security and its results shall be presented to the consumers in a comprehensible way, also using a colour information system.
