Cybersecurity in the focus of the EU
The European Commission already responded to the threat situation in 2016 by issuing the NIS1 (Network and Information Security) Directive, which required advanced security measures against cyberattacks. This covered critical infrastructures such as energy, water, finance and health, as well as digital service providers in the EU. Now, new regulations are intended to further strengthen the resilience of organizations against cyberattacks. Manufacturing companies are also in the spotlight. For example, the new EU Machinery Regulation (EU) No. 2023/1230 contains cybersecurity requirements for the first time. The regulation is valid in all EU countries and is to be applied from January 20, 2027.
New NIS2 directive also affects manufacturing companies
