But, these days, more and more other sectors interact with, and critically depend on, those ICT networks: there's an urgent case for extending those obligations, and creating a level playing field. And indeed around 90% of respondents to our consultation agreed there should be network and information security requirements in sectors like banking, energy, transport, healthcare, internet services and public administrations.
