What is NIS2?

NIS2 is an update to the EU's Network and Information Systems Directive. This directive aims to improve cybersecurity across the European Union. It sets out requirements for businesses and organizations to follow to protect their network and information systems from cyber threats.

How can you prepare for NIS2?

  1. Understand the Regulations: First, it's important for companies to be aware of what NIS2 entails. This means understanding which parts of the directive apply to their business.
  2. Assess Current Cybersecurity Practices: You can start by evaluating your current cybersecurity measures. This involves looking at how you protect your networks, data, and systems from cyber-attacks.
  3. Identify Gaps: After assessing your current practices, you will need to identify where you fall short of NIS2 requirements. This could be in areas like risk management, incident reporting, or system security.
  4. Develop a Plan: Once the gaps are identified, we suggest you develop a plan to address these areas. This might include implementing new security technologies, revising policies, or training staff.
  5. Training and Awareness: It's crucial for all your staff, not just IT personnel, to understand the importance of cybersecurity. Regular training and awareness programs can help in creating a culture of security.
  6. Incident Response Plan: You should have a clear plan for how to respond if an incident occurs. This includes steps for containment, investigation, and recovery, as well as how to report the incident in compliance with NIS2.
  7. Regular Updates and Audits: This will not be a one-time effort. You will have to regularly update your security measures and conduct audits to ensure compliance with NIS2.
  8. Collaboration and Sharing: NIS2 encourages the sharing of information and collaboration among companies and authorities. Participating in industry groups and forums can be beneficial.
  9. Legal Compliance: Finally, it's important to regularly consult with legal experts to ensure that all NIS2 compliance efforts are aligned with the law, especially as regulations and interpretations may evolve.

Preparing for NIS2 is about being proactive in cybersecurity practices, staying informed about regulations, and continuously improving and adapting security measures. Remember, the goal of NIS2 is not just compliance but also to significantly enhance the overall cybersecurity posture of your company.
