Inception Impact Assessment on Cybersecurity – NIS Directive

Review of EU rules on the security of network and information systems

The EU Commission plans to revise the Directive on security of network and information systems (NIS Directive). German industry advocates a holistic, overlap-free, EU-wide harmonised regulatory framework on cybersecurity that finds the right balance between enhancing the EU’s cyber-resilience while avoiding over-regulation and imposing unduly high burdens on European companies. OES and DSP should find a level playing field across the EU.
