NIS 2 – safeguard your IT infrastructure against cyber threats with us

NIS2, short for the Network and Information Systems Directive, is a set of cybersecurity regulations established by the European Union (EU). Its primary aim is to safeguard essential services and digital infrastructure from cyber threats.

NIS2 Objectives

NIS2 introduces new measures to ensure that organizations operating in or with the European Union (EU) have a high common level of network and infrastructure security.

The “directive” outlines the goals all EU member states must achieve; each country must implement it in their own law with room for some national specifics to reach these goals by October 2024. Directives are binding in terms of minimal requirements for what should be implemented.

NIS2 is the new European cybersecurity directive that will replace the existing NIS Directive starting October 2024.

It is the most comprehensive EU cybersecurity legislation to date, covering 18 sectors. 

Its purpose is to establish a baseline of security measures for digital service providers and operators of essential services, to mitigate the risk of cyber attacks and to improve the overall level of cybersecurity in the EU.

Are You Impacted By NIS2?

The guidelines outline sectors that are “highly critical” and others that are “critical” under NIS2.

According to the document, countries must provide a list of the essential entities by April 17, 2025, with updates at least every two years from there on.
