    EC Consults on Revision of Network and Information Systems Directive

    July 07, 2020

    EC launched a consultation to revise the network and information systems (NIS) Directive (2016/1148), which was adopted in July 2016 and is the first horizontal internal market instrument aimed at improving the resilience of the EU against cybersecurity risks. The consultation, which closes on October 02 2020, aims to collect views on the implementation and impact of potential future changes in this regime. The results of this consultation will be used for the evaluation and impact assessment of the NIS Directive.

    The NIS Directive obliges companies that provide essential services in vital sectors, such as banking, financial market infrastructures, digital infrastructure, and digital services, including search engines, cloud computing services, and online marketplaces, to protect their information technology systems and report major cybersecurity incidents to the national authorities. Article 23 of the Directive requires EC to review the functioning of this Directive periodically. As part of the key policy objective to make “Europe fit for the digital age” as well as in line with the objectives of the Security Union, EC announced in its 2020 work program that it would conduct a review on this by the end of 2020. As part of this process, this consultation seek views on the topic of cybersecurity as well as on the different elements of the NIS Directive, which are all subject to the review. 

    This consultation is open to citizens, public and private organizations, trade associations, and academics. The consultation includes a questionnaire that is divided in following three sections:

    • Section 1 contains general questions on the NIS Directive that are accessible to all categories of stakeholders.
    • Section 2 contains technical questions on the functioning of the NIS Directive. This section is mainly targeted at individuals, organizations, or authorities that are familiar with the NIS Directive and cybersecurity policies.
    • Section 3 aims to gather views on approaches to cybersecurity in the European context currently not addressed by the NIS Directive. This section is mainly targeted at individuals, organizations, or authorities that are familiar with the NIS Directive and cybersecurity policies.
