More sectors in the EU are required to report cyber incidents


The number of industries that will be required to report cyber incidents and take steps to secure networks and information systems is growing. EU member states and the European Parliament reached a political agreement on the matter on Wednesday, the national government reports.

Currently, only essential service providers (such as banks, drinking water companies and the energy sector) are required to do so.

It is then expected that the same guidelines will be introduced in 2024 for so-called “significant suppliers”, such as parties active in the production and distribution of foodstuffs and postal and courier services.

For essential services, supervision is proactive, for major service providers, supervision takes place after the event has occurred.

After a vote in the European Parliament, the directive is expected to be published in the fall of this year. This can then be converted into national legislation in 2024, reports the national government.
