PTS publishes plans for operational security and confidentiality regulation in 2018-19

Wednesday 20 December 2017 | 12:07 CET | News
Swedish postal and telecoms regulator PTS said that in the period 2018-2019, it will start examining small and medium-sized network and service operators for compliance with operational security requirements. PTS will continue supervising configuration work, too, as reconfigurations have led to a large proportion of incidents. The watchdog will look at ways that providers deal with risk analyses, too.
