null Statement to the European Commission on the revision of the NIS Directive

CSC welcomes the plan to update the NIS Directive and sees it as an opportunity to improve the coherence of the cybersecurity regulation across the Union and to clarify the rules concerning information sharing as well as certain terminological issues.
