This law transposes into Belgian law Directive (EU) 2022/2555 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 December 2022 (the “NIS2 directive”) on measures for a high common level of cybersecurity across the Union, amending Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 and Directive (EU) 2018/1972, and repealing Directive (EU) 2016/1148, and repeals the Law of 7 April 2019 establishing a framework for the security of networks and information systems of general interest for public security (the "NIS1 law").

The NIS2 law, which was coordinated by the Centre for Cybersecurity Belgium (CCB) and the Prime Minister's Cabinet, is an important step towards making Belgium one of the least cyber-vulnerable countries in the world.
