Preparing for NIS2


European businesses take note: a new era of cybersecurity regulations is upon us. The Network and Information Systems 2 (NIS2) Directive, coming into effect this October, is set to be the most comprehensive cybersecurity law in the European Union to date.

What does NIS2 do?

NIS2 aims to create a more unified front against cyber threats by introducing consistent cybersecurity standards across all member states. It covers a wide range of sectors, 15 in total, including energy, transport, healthcare, and digital infrastructure.

Here’s what businesses can expect:

  • Minimum cybersecurity measures: NIS2 sets a baseline for essential security practices. This includes risk assessments, data encryption policies, employee training, and multifactor authentication.
  • Incident response plans: Organizations will need to create documented plans for handling and reporting security incidents. This ensures a swift and coordinated response to cyberattacks.
  • Business continuity planning:  NIS2 emphasizes the importance of maintaining operations during and after a security incident. Companies will need to have plans in place to minimize disruption.
