Internal market committee to greenlight Network and Information Security directive
Wed 15 Jun 2016, 01:05

MEPs sitting on the internal market committee have welcomed plans for a new cybersecurity law, which was approved by national ministers in May. The Network and Information Security (NIS) directive will require “essential services” operators and “digital service providers” to notify the authorities about any cyber “incidents".

The committee will vote on Tuesday and is expected to give the plan its blessing. The European Parliament as a whole is then likely to follow suit, paving the way for national laws in the next two years.
