A clear, concise primer on the NIS Regulations for OES

This essential guide for OES (operators of essential services) offers an introduction to the NIS Regulations, which brought the EU’s NIS Directive (Directive on security of network and information systems) into UK law.

The guide explores the impact of the Regulations on OES and offers implementation guidance. It also covers the requirements of the NCSC’s (National Cyber Security Centre) 14 Security Principles and CAF (Cyber Assessment Framework). 

“An excellent introduction both to those working in these sectors and also anyone seeking new ideas and an approach for developing their own cyber risk management and response arrangements…The use of ISO standards to help with implementation is also a great idea as it uses controls that many organisations will already have in place.”

- Christopher Wright, Wright-CandA Consulting Ltd
