A cyber resilience management system based on international standards

Article 19 of the Directive states that member states should “encourage the use of European or internationally accepted standards and specifications relevant to the security of network and information systems”.

There are two relevant international standards that we recommend:

  • ISO/IEC 27001:2013, the international standard for an information security management system (ISMS)
  • ISO 22301:2012, the international standard for a business continuity management system (BCMS).
