NIS Directive Training

The NIS Directive (Directive on security of network and information systems) requires OES (operators of essential services) and DSPs (digital service providers) to implement “appropriate and proportionate technical and organisational measures” to mitigate the risks posed to the security of their network and information systems. 

Just like the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), the NIS Directive empowers regulators to levy fines that are “effective, proportionate and dissuasive”, with some member states intending to adopt a similar penalty regime to that set out in the Regulation.

How can we help you comply with the NIS Directive?

Implementing an organisational cyber resilience programme that combines information security and business continuity best practice enables OES and DSPs to demonstrate that they have applied the Directive’s requirements.

Article 19 of the Directive recommends internationally accepted standards and specifications for network and information security. IT Governance advises two relevant standards:

  • ISO/IEC 27001:2013 – the international standard that describes best practice for an ISMS (information security management system). 
  • ISO 22301:2012 – the international standard that sets out the requirements for a best-practice BCMS (business continuity management system).

An integrated management system based on these best-practice standards provides comprehensive protection of your networks and systems from the majority of threats and enables your organisation to return to business as usual should an incident occur.
