Views sought on UK government’s NIS Directive
Written by staff reporter
Views are being sought from industry, regulators and other interested parties on the UK government’s plans to transpose the Security of Network and Information Systems Directive into UK legislation.
The NIS Directive is designed to help make sure UK operators in electricity, transport, water, energy, transport, health and digital infrastructure are prepared to deal with the increasing numbers of cyber threats. It will also cover other threats affecting IT, such as power failures, hardware failures and environmental hazards.
This consultation seeks views from industry, regulators and other interested parties on the government’s plans to transpose the Directive into UK legislation. It sets out the government’s proposed transposition approach and asks a series of questions on a range of detailed policy issues relating to transposition.
The consultation closes at 11:45pm on 30 September 2017.
