Preparing for NIS2: A cybersecurity transformation for businesses


The European Union’s Network and Information Systems Directive 2 (NIS2) is set to revolutionize cybersecurity regulations for organizations across Europe, introducing stricter compliance measures for over 160,000 businesses. This represents a significant transformation for many organizations, demanding a comprehensive overhaul of their cybersecurity posture, tools, processes, and skills.

To guide organizations through this transformative process, Microsoft has released a free guide: “Preparing for NIS2: 3 Guiding Principles for Leaders”, offering practical insights and strategies for navigating the NIS2 landscape. The guide highlights the need to:

Understand the NIS2 requirements: Thoroughly examine the NIS2 directive to identify the specific compliance obligations applicable to your organization.

Implement robust risk management practices: Proactively identify, assess, and prioritize cybersecurity risks to mitigate potential threats effectively.

Strengthen threat management and incident response capabilities: Employ advanced threat detection and response solutions to gain real-time visibility into cyber threats and enable rapid remediation.
