Quite a few regulatory actions are in the pipeline or in a process of
beeing enacted.

:: USA: Meet Presidential Policy Directive 20, the United States’ new
cyberwar policy

:: EU-Commissioner Neelie Kroes in Davos on her plans in Europe:
"Those initiatives will be complemented by actions stepping up the fight
against cybercrime, by initiatives aiming at strengthening the external
EU cyber security policy and exploring synergies between the civilian
and the military dimension."

and the meat:
'"the [Cybersecurity] Strategy will be accompanied by a proposal for a
*Directive on Network and Information Security (NIS) across the EU*, to
ensure the smooth functioning of the internal market. "

It is quite unusual for European level officials to stress a military
dimension. Apparently advanced NATO deliberations underway, synergies
with the European Union bodies sought.
