Cullen International has just published a new Tracker providing an overview of the new EU cybersecurity rules proposed in the draft revised directive on the security of network and information systems (NIS2). The draft directive was presented by the European Commission on 16 December 2020 and will repeal and replace the current NIS Directive.
The objective of the proposal is to tackle the limitations of the current NIS regime, as well as respond to changes in the cybersecurity threat landscape.
The draft directive would significantly extend the scope of the current directive by adding new sectors such as telecoms, social media platforms and the public administration.
It would remove the distinction made between operators of essential services (OES) and digital service providers (DSPs, which currently fall into three categories: online marketplaces, search engines and cloud service providers).
The proposed directive would establish that all medium and large size entities active in the sectors covered by the NIS2 framework would have to automatically comply with the security rules put forward in the proposal – removing the possibility for member states to tailor the requirements in certain cases.
Other significant changes proposed in the draft directive would include:
- addressing for the first time cybersecurity of the ICT supply chain;
- introducing a two-step procedure to report significant security breaches;
- establishing the EU-Cyber Crises Liaison Organisation Network (EU-CyCLONe) to support the coordinated management of EU wide cybersecurity incidents and crises at operational level;
- increasing ENISA’s responsibilities within its mandate; and
- imposing in case of non-compliance administrative fines up to €10m or 2% of the entities’ total turnover worldwide, whichever is higher.
Cullen International's 'Tracker' will be updated regularly to follow all relevant developments around the adoption of the NIS2 Directive.
