European Cybersecurity Legislation

The EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) of 27 April 2016, with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data and repealing Directive 95/46/EC. This Regulation automatically enters into application on 25 May 2018 after a two-year transition period. It intends to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the EU while addressing export of personal data outside the Union.

The EU Network and Information Security (NIS) Directive 2016/1148 of 16 July 2016 concerning measures for a high common level of security of network and information systems across the Union. This Directive enters  into force, via national implementing measures, enters into force on 9 May 2018.

In this context, CEOs need to respond to some basic questions about their companies’ compliance with the new rules :

  • Does the GDPR or the NIS Directive, or both, apply to our company?

  • Which are our obligations for mandatory security breach notifications, incident handling and business continuity?

  • Who in the business is accountable for these legislative requirements?

  • What is the roadmap and the action plan for our company to reach and demonstrable compliance?

  • What standards, metrics and procedures can we use to validate compliance to the Supervisory Authorities?

  • How to defend ourselves in post-breach investigations about security incidents and data leakage?

In order to avoid risk of severe sanctions up to 4% of global annual turnover or €20 million, all organizations seated or doing business with the European Union need to ensure compliance by May 2018.
