The NIS Directive | Coherent and Consistent Cyber Security Across the Union
The European Commission is in the process of finalising the review of the NIS Directive, the first horizontal legislation undertaken at EU level for the protection of network and information systems across the Union. The directive was only transposed in 2018 and as such, a review in 2020 underlines the importance of the issue. The review intends to evaluate, amongst other things:
• The functioning of the NIS Directive based on the level of security of network and information systems in Member States, and…
• Assess the effectiveness, efficiency, coherence, relevance and value-add of the NIS Directive, taking into account the evolving technological and threat landscape.
This 3rd session of the Cyber Security Salons will look at the development of national capabilities, for instance around cyber exercises; cross border collaboration between EU countries and in particular through the Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRT network); and the national supervision of critical sectors, and inconsistencies across the Union which may lead to fragmentation of the single market it some cases. It will also reflect on the interaction of various regulatory initiatives, such as GDPR, PSD2, and telecom sector rules amongst others, with the NIS Directive.
