The EU’s Network and Information Systems (NIS) Directive entered into force in August 2016, providing legal measures to boost the overall level of cybersecurity in the union.
The NIS Directive is particularly focused on the industries and organisations that rely heavily on IT to provide services essential to everyday life and national security.
Cybersecurity incidents impacting operators of essential services have the potential to cause significant damage to the economy and even loss of life. And the threat is increasing, as shown by the wave of malware specifically written to target the systems they use in 2017.
With the clock ticking for EU member states to transpose the NIS Directive into their own national laws by 9th May 2018, this white paper explains the directive and the implications it has for affected organisations. It covers:
- The relationship between the NIS Directive and GDPR
- What EU member states are required to put in place
- How businesses should prepare
- The four objectives and 14 security principles of the NIS Directive
- How LogRhythm can help businesses become more resilient to threats
