Opstelten: reporting requirements for small and medium business security issues not




Small and medium-sized businesses do not have too much to worry about the upcoming obligation to report security issues and data leaks, if it is to minister Opstelten. The government would like to address. Above data leaks and security breaches at large companies

Ivo Opstelten Minister of Security and Justice Ivo sees little in a proposal by the European Commission to small and medium-sized companies also dropping. Under a duty to report security issues That writes it to the House.

The minister is worried that the reporting requirement, which takes effect if the continuity of enterprises in certain sectors by a cyber attack compromised, SMBs would cost too much money. Deliberately chose to leave “in order to achieve a balance between the administrative burden and the purpose of the bill. Companies excluded according to him

The obligation to report security issues applies to problems in the broad sense, and is separate from the obligation to report data breaches, which only applies to security issues involving personal at stake. The data breach notification requirement does apply to small and medium-sized businesses, but nonetheless they do not have much to fear, if it is to Opstelten. According to the minister, it would be impossible if the regulators should treat each data breach and do so only at the risk of data leakage required to be reported. Especially SMBs will benefit them, think Opstelten.
