On 2 May 2017 a Swedish Government Official Report, namely SOU 2017:36, regarding the implementation of the NIS Directive was published. This SOU has been circulated for consultation. A government bill is now being drafted which, subsequently, will be submitted to the Parliament for its decision. According to the SOU, the proposed new act and regulation will enter into force on 10 May 2018.
The implementation acts are:
Operators of essential services must immediately report significant disruptions to the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency. The reporting obligation must not have a negative effect on correcting the disruption. The reporting obligation does not apply to disruptions when operators have a legal obligation to report the disruption to the security police or the national defence.
Providers of digital services must immediately report to the Civil Contingencies Agency any disruptions that have a substantial effect on providing the services.
The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) is the appointed National Computer Security Incident Response Team unit.
The suggested regulatory authorities for the different sectors are as follows:
Operators of essential services are subject to Swedish law when the supplier is located in Sweden.
Providers of digital services are subject to Swedish law when its main establishment is located in Sweden.

As the implementation date of the NIS Directive approaches we ask: are Digital Service Providers (DSPs) aware of their compliance obligations?
