The latest resilience news from around the world

The European Commission is proposing to speed-up the implementation of measures to strengthen the resilience of EU critical infrastructure. A proposal for a Council Recommendation builds on a five-point plan for resilient critical infrastructure presented by President von der Leyen at the European Parliament on 5th October.

As a key part of the EU's work to build a Security Union, in 2020 the Commission proposed updated rules to increase the resilience of critical entities. With the recently-agreed Directive on the resilience of critical infrastructure (CER Directive) and the Revised Directive on the security of network and information system (NIS2 Directive), the EU will soon have an updated and comprehensive legal framework to strengthen both the physical and cyber-resilience of critical infrastructure. However, in view of the fast-evolving threat landscape, the application of the new rules is to be accelerated.

The proposed Recommendation focusses on three key areas: preparedness, response, and international cooperation. Priority will be given to the energy, digital infrastructure, transport, and space sectors.
