European Union Approves Cybersecurity Measures and New Directive

 The European Union’s Telecommunications Ministers agreed on measures for a high shared level of cybersecurity across the union, including a new directive. 

 the plan intends to increase the resilience and incident response capacities of both the public and commercial sectors, as well as the EU as a whole, at a news conference following a meeting of ministers on Friday. 

The new “NIS2” directive, which aims to boost cybersecurity, will replace the current rules on network and information system security if it is enacted. 

In our increasingly digitalized world, where cyber threats may have enormous effects on society, the economy, and democracy, the new NIS directive will play a critical role in bolstering cybersecurity. 

The proposed Artificial Intelligence Act has also made progress. The proposed rule intends to promote the development and adoption of safe and lawful artificial intelligence (AI) that respects basic rights across the single market.
