Members of the European Parliament have today come to an agreement over establishing the unit’s first cyber security legislation, outlined in the 2013 Directive on network and information security (NIS).

The rules will require mandatory cooperation from marketplace giants such as Amazon and eBay, search engines including Google, and leading cloud service providers, encouraging them to contribute information on security frameworks and issues such as hacks and data breaches. According to some reports, smaller digital companies will be exempt, as too will social media networks such as Facebook.

The European Parliament believes that the rules will help improve cybersecurity capabilities of the Member States, as well as helping to protect the EU’s critical infrastructure, across energy, transport, banking and healthcare, from potential cyber attacks.
