When technology meets regulation: The first cybersecurity law in the EU
Over the last two decades, the technological and security landscape in Europe has been rapidly changing. The reliability and security of networks, information systems and services play an important role in society, especially for economic growth.
Due to the essential nature of these systems, some cyber-criminals seek to disturb not only economic activities (thus generating a substantial financial loss), but also essential services, including but not limited to electricity and water supply. As a result of these cyber-security threats, it was necessary to act.
The NIS Directive is the first cybersecurity law in the European Union seeking to establish relevant obligations both to Member States and the EU.
