The rapid evolution of technology and its adoption has placed immense pressure on businesses to remain compliant with ever-changing regulations. The revised Network and Information Security Directive (NIS2) sets the benchmark for cybersecurity standards within the EU. Our tailor-made NIS2 Gap-Analysis and Action Plan service is designed to ensure you not only meet these standards but excel at them. With a blend of deep legal knowledge and practical business insights, we guide organizations to seamlessly integrate NIS2 requirements.
NIS2 is an EU directive coming into effect in October 2024 setting baseline requirements for network and information system security. New enforcement requirements are introduced, along with heavy fines and personal liability for management in case of non-compliance. NIS2 expands the cybersecurity requirements and sanctions across the EU, introducing stricter requirements for certain sectors.
The NIS 2 gap analysis would answer to what extent your organisation is affected by the regulation. Previously, providers of (A) socially important services (i.e. energy, transport, banking, financial market infrastructure, healthcare, supply and distribution of drinking water and digital infrastructure) and providers of (B) digital services, internet-based marketplaces, internet-based search engines or cloud services) were covered. The NIS2 Directive expands the sectors of actors that are impacted to include:
Even with state-of-the-art cybersecurity measures, vulnerabilities can exist. NIS2 aims to standardize and elevate cybersecurity practices across the EU. How prepared is your organization to adapt and excel? Let us perform a NIS2 gap analysis or provide you with a second opinion of your current status and maturity.
NIS2 introduces personal liability (fines) and personal criminal liability (penalties) for individuals at the board level or in a managerial position if they fail to comply with their NIS2 obligations. Under NIS2, management bodies would be considered those individual senior managers who (a) are responsible or act as a representative for the entity covered under NIS2, (b) have the authority to make decisions on the legal entity’s behalf and/or (c) have the authority to exercise control over the legal entity.
In certain instances, the enforcement authorities may impose temporary prohibitions on the management, including the chief executive officer and legal representatives, from executing managerial functions.
Sanctions include GDPR-like fines based on global turnover. For an essential entity, the penalties are higher, the highest of a minimum of 10 million EUR or 2 % of global turnover. For an important entity, fines are in the lower tier, a minimum of 7 million EUR or 1.4% of turnover.
