Now is the time for power generators and smart energy organisations to check they meet cybersecurity requirements
The EU Directive on the Security of Networks and Information Systems (NIS Directive) will become law on 9 May 2018. It should be on companies’ radar, because it carries significant penalties. A failure to comply can incur a financial penalty of up to £17 million. The NIS Directive will apply to electricity generators, suppliers, smart energy providers and network operators if they fall within the definition of an “operator of essential service” (OES).
