A study by Queen Mary University of London’s Cloud Legal Project has stated that the cybersecurity strategies for air transport set by the NIS Directive of European Union might be ineffective against cyber risks and do not go far enough. The 2018 NIS Regulations which implemented the NIS Directive in the UK ensures the safety of operators of essential services against disruptions caused by cyber risks.

The study was carried out by Ian Walden, Professor of Information and Communications Law and Head of CCLS, and David Michels, Research Assistant at the Cloud Legal Project.
