The European Parliament approves legislation to improve the security of critical digital infrastructure in Europe

The European Parliament has approved legislation to protect the EU’s digital infrastructure through stricter rules of risk assessment and reporting.

The European Parliament has approved a set of rules, previously negotiated with the Council, to make the EU’s critical infrastructure more resilient. The legislation covers critical infrastructure sectors, including the digital infrastructure, creating stricter risk assessment rules and reporting for critical actors. In other words, ‘member states should adopt national resilience strategies, and cross-border communication should happen through designated single points of contact in each member state‘.
