This article reviews the manner in which two types of legislation in the Netherlands, namely laws on foreign direct investment and laws on network and information security, address
the risks that arise from changes in control over companies
in the cybernetwork. It also identifies the potential vulnerabilities of the existing regulatory framework, which are due
to the failure to adopt a sufficiently ecosystemic approach.
While the EU legislation on network and information security contains appropriate and proportionate risk-management
measures that ensure the security of supply chains, the Union regulation of foreign-direct-investment screening instruments appears to neglect direct suppliers and service providers.
