EU ministers approve new cybersecurity directive

Monday 6 December 2021 | 11:29 CET | News
The EU states have agreed to a proposed reform of the Network and Information Security directive. Known as NIS2, the new legislation is expected to lead to greater coordination of cybersecurity across the EU, including requirements for more businesses to take preventative measures against online threats and report on security incidents. Following approval by the national telecom ministers in their latest meeting, the final text of the legislation will be negotiated in a trilogue with the European Parliament and Commission and take effect two years after their approval.
