EU NIS Directive Compliance
What is the EU NIS Directive?
The EU Network and Information Security Directive (NISD) is the first piece of EU-wide cybersecurity legislation. The EU NIS Directive took effect as of May 2018.
The goal of the directive is to boost cybersecurity efforts across the EU on behalf of citizens’ comfort and safety across the digital sphere. This is accomplished through three critical aspects:
- Greater National Capabilities
- Increased EU-level Cooperation
- National Supervision of Critical Sectors (Computer Security Incident Response Teams)
Achieve NIS Directive Compliance with a Risk-Based Approach
EU Member States must work together to deal with the evolving landscape of cybersecurity threats. To meet the requirements of the EU NIS Directive, companies must have measures in place to manage cyber risks. The regulations specifically apply to Operators of Essential Services and Digital Service Providers, which make up critical business sectors that, if services were disrupted, would have a profound impact on the society or the economy.
Achieving EU NIS Directive compliance can be overwhelming. However, EU Member States can achieve increased EU-level cooperation with the help of an enterprise risk management approach. When businesses take a risk-based approach, they can easily break down processes into segments that different individuals are accountable for. Step by step, as individuals within each business complete their own tasks, these segments will be brought back together into a picture of compliance.
Measuring and achieving NIS Directive compliance can be a large undertaking without software, as many different applications would be required to cover the scope of this new regulation. With LogicManager, every tool you need to become compliant is centralized in one intuitive platform.
