The EU has announced new legislation under the title of EU Security Union. There are a number of reasons for this legislation, an important one is recognising infrastructures on which the operation of day-to-day society depends. EU is still working on the final text of a number of directives, as far as we van judge now GÉANT and NRENs will be appointed critital infrastructures and universities and research institutes will be appointed “important infrastructure”, which means that for example the NIS-2 directive will apply to both.
The NIS-2 directives imposes a large number of obligations to the organisations that are within scope. With some of these we are already familiar and will be easy to meet for a part of the NRENs, some are new and will take a fair amount of preparation. It is expected the directives will be finalized by the second half of 2022, and then the Member States will need to implement them, so you will probable have 2 to 3 years to prepare and you will definitely need that time.
In this infoshare we will give an introduction to the NIS-2 directive and a number of related directives and go into the impact of them and explain the state of affairs.
We will also invite representatives of NRENs to share with us how they are preparing for this legislation. If you already have been looking into preparations for these directives and are willing to share please let us know in advance by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will end this infoshare with a discussion on how we can jointly prepare for these directives.
