The new EU Directive on security of network and information systems (or NIS Directive) brings new obligations to operators of essential services and digital service providers. They must implement appropriate security measures and report serious cyber security incident within 72 hours. The NIS Directive is the GDPR of critical infrastructure: maximum fines for a major breach can reach several hundred thousand Euro and up to £17M in the UK.
The NIS Directive is an opportunity for businesses to adapt their security and minimise the risks caused by a cyber attack on the society.
The implementation of the NIS Directive faces several challenges. There is currently a low awareness on the directive, a lack of clarity on the minimum security measures, and several EU Member States are still working on its implementation.
