• Additionally, in future industry will have to comply with the new European policy framework including the Directive on Security of Network and Information Systems (NIS Directive) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
• Smart cities will also be covered in a specific session.
The aim of the workshop is to launch a dialogue and to better understand industry's standardisation needs to ensure the continuity of their operation through prevention, protection and response measures from the organization, process and technology levels.
The input received will shape the CEN and CENELEC standardisation roadmap for the security sector.
