Public consultation on the preliminary draft for the "NIS2 Law" and its draft implementing Royal Decree
The Prime Minister has tasked the Centre for Cybersecurity Belgium with organising a public consultation on the preliminary draft for the law establishing a framework for the cybersecurity of network and information systems of general interest for public security (“NIS2 law”), as well as on its draft implementing Royal Decree.
The preliminary draft law and the draft Royal Decree aim to transpose the Directive (EU) 2022/2555 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 December 2022 on measures for a high common level of cybersecurity across the Union, amending Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 and Directive (EU) 2018/1972, and repealing Directive (EU) 2016/1148, hereafter called “NIS2 directive”.
The NIS2 Directive replaces the Directive (EU) 2016/1148 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 6 July 2016 concerning measures for a high common level of security of network and information systems across the Union, hereafter the “NIS1 directive”, transposed in Belgium by the law of 7th April 2019 establishing a framework for the security of network and information systems of general interest for public security (“NIS1 law”) and by the Royal Decree of 12th July 2019 implementing the law of 7th April 2019 establishing a framework for the security of network and information systems of general interest for public security, as well as by the law of 1st July 2011 on the security and protection of critical infrastructures.
On the one hand, the NIS2 law sets out obligations regarding the national cybersecurity strategies and, on the other hand, it prescribes cybersecurity risk management and incident reporting requirements for certain (essential and important) organisations.
Reactions to this public consultation must be submitted by the 21th of December 2023 at the latest, in the manner described on the first page of the Annex.
