EC Consultation - Improving Network and Information Security in the EU

Network and information systems, most particularly the Internet, are a core element of our economies and societies as they facilitate the cross-border movement of goods, service and people. However network and information security incidents are increasing and have a negative impact when affecting critical sectors such as finance or health. The European Commission (EC) recently launched a consultation to identify strategic actions to improve network and information security in the EU. The consultation also contributes to EC’s impact assessment regarding possible future risk management and security breach reporting requirements that would affect businesses in particular. The consultation is open until 15 October 2012. Take Part in this Consultation
