EU Cybersecurity Strategy: NIS 2-Directive

German industry’s position on the ITRE Committee’s amendments

Members of the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE) of the European Parliament proposed 600 amendments to the EU Commission’s proposal for a Directive on Security of Network and Information Systems (NIS 2-Directive). German industry welcomes several of these amendments as they help to enhance Europe’s cyber-resilience while ensuring that industry is not confronted with over-regulation. However, we see the urgent need for further amendments, especially concerning the potential level of fines, the scope and several definitions.
