NIS2 Board Training

NIS2 Board training is essential to successfully implementing your cybersecurity framework and for management buy-in. The NIS 2 Directive is more than just a guideline; it's a mandate. It establishes that the members at the helm of essential and significant entities, particularly the Board of Directors and CEOs, possess an acute understanding of cybersecurity risks. This understanding is fundamental in ensuring they can make informed decisions that protect their organization's assets, uphold their fiduciary duties, and maintain the trust of stakeholders.

Why is NIS2 Board Training Essential?

  • Compliance with the NIS 2 Directive: Articles 20 and 21 of the directive are clear about the responsibilities of management bodies. It mandates regular training to ensure they possess the skills and knowledge to identify, assess, and manage cybersecurity risks effectively.
  • Fiduciary Duties: Directors have a significant role in risk management. Any lapse in oversight, particularly concerning known risks, can be seen as a breach of loyalty. Decisions that are negligent or ill-advised breach the duty of care.
  • Cyberattack Disclosures: Post a cyberattack, it's vital for entities to convey evidence of a robust cybersecurity program that aligns with international standards. This proves they're prepared to respond aptly to security breaches.
