What is the NIS2 Directive?

The NIS2 Directive, also known as the Network and Information Security Directive, is a significant piece of legislation aimed at improving cyber security and protecting critical infrastructure across the European Union (EU).

It builds upon the previous NIS Directive, addressing its shortcomings and expanding its scope to enhance security requirements, reporting obligations, and crisis management capabilities. Compliance with the NIS2 Directive is crucial for businesses operating in the EU to safeguard their systems, mitigate cyber threats, and ensure resilience.

Ready or Not? Ensure Your Organisation Meets NIS2 Compliance Requirements Early

The NIS2 Directive, a comprehensive update to the EU’s cyber security framework, introduces new risk management and incident reporting requirements, along with stricter enforcement measures.

Expanded scope:

The NIS2 Directive broadens its scope to cover additional sectors and digital service providers. Ensure you understand whether your organisation now falls within the Directive's jurisdiction, as this will determine your compliance obligations.

Risk management:

Organisations must implement more stringent risk management measures. This involves identifying and assessing risks, establishing policies and procedures, and ensuring proper training and awareness programs for employees.

Incident reporting:

The NIS2 Directive mandates the reporting of significant incidents within 24 hours and less significant incidents within 72 hours. Familiarise yourself with the reporting criteria and ensure your organisation has an effective incident response plan in place, including clear reporting channels and procedures

Supervision and enforcement:

With the introduction of harmonised administrative fines and stronger enforcement powers for national authorities, organisations must take compliance seriously. Understand your organisation’s awareness requirements, identify any gaps, and develop a roadmap to address them before the October 2024 deadline.

Maintain a strong security posture:

Well-informed and well-trained employees are crucial for ensuring an organisation's cyber security resilience and effective incident response, both of which are key aspects of the NIS2 Directive. Raising awareness and providing cyber security training for employees are considered essential components of an effective risk management strategy and should be implemented to ensure NIS2 compliance.
