Draft EU Cyber Security Directive - UK call for evidence
Specifically, the UK government is preparing an initial impact assessment on the potential effects of the Directive in the UK and has launched the call for evidence in order to gather data to inform the evidence base for this assessment. The consultation closes on 21 June 2013, and is available to download here, although an online response version is also available.
The consultation document invites evidence in three main areas:
- information on what the requirements and costs are for existing reporting mechanisms;
- input on the additional requirements and costs for business if the measures set out in the Directive are implemented;
- views on additional benefits which would result from implementing the measures set out in the Directive.
