Free Download: The EU Network and Information Security (NIS) Directive

Adopted by the European Parliament on 6 July 2016, the NIS Directive (Directive (EU) 2016/1148) aims to protect critical infrastructure by achieving a high common level of security in network and information systems across the European Union.

Operators of essential services and digital service providers will face a number of compliance challenges before May 2018 (the date by which EU member states must transpose the Directive into national law), not least in terms of improved security measures and breach reporting obligations.

This green paper explains the applicability of the Directive, summarises its requirements, explains why Brexit will not exempt organisations in the UK from complying, and tells you how your organisation can use international best practice to demonstrate compliance.
