Feel in control regarding the NIS directive?

28 May 2019

The NIS directive was adopted in 2016 in EU and sets a range of network and information security requirements which apply to operators of essential services and digital service providers (DSPs). Since it is an EU directive, every EU member state has to adopt national legislation, which follows or ‘transposes’ the directive. The deadline for national transposition by the EU member states was 9 May 2018.

The purpose of the NIS Directive

The directive is identical across the EU, and the laws of each country based on the directive are also very similar. The aim of the directive is to achieve a high common level of security in networks and information systems for critical societal and digital services within the Union. In this way, the internal market will be strengthened, and the vulnerabilities of central social services will be reduced.

Information security

Do you know how to work systematically with information security?

According to several reports and investigations, there are still many authorities that do not work in a systematic and risk-based manner with information security, which is now actually required of them.  

We understand. Working with systematic information security work and choosing the right security measures can feel like a big and daunting task. In addition, enough resources are required to meet the requirements. The issue of information security therefore needs to be prioritised by management and decision makers.

Therefore, we can help you ensure that the data and protection information you own and manage is well protected. In collaboration with you, our experts evaluate the requirements to ensure that the right level of security is defined based on identified challenges and a threat analysis.
