In collaboration with our Supporting Sponsor Mazars we host an afternoon on the Directive on measures for a high common level of cybersecurity across the Union (NIS 2) 

The EU cybersecurity rules introduced in 2016 were updated by the NIS2 Directive that came into force in 2023. The goal is to enhance the level of cybersecurity within the EU as a whole. This is primarily done by expanding the scope of the NIS 2 to new sectors where two categories are distinguished “High Criticality” and “Other Critical”. This wil further improve the resilience and incident response capacities of all entities within the EU as a whole. By creating a culture of security across sectors that are vital for the EU economy and society and that rely heavily on ICTs, such as energy, transport, water, banking, financial market infrastructures, healthcare and digital infrastructure.

Each Member State will have to appoint operators of essential services in the above sectors. These operators will have to take appropriate security measures and notify relevant national authorities of serious incidents. Key digital service providers, such as search engines, cloud computing services and online marketplaces, will have to comply with the security and notification requirements under the Directive.

In this session we will discuss the new NIS2 legislation and the impact this might have for your organization. Furthermore we will give you insight into the way you can leverage Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) service providers to detect and respond to cybersecurity incidents in accordance with the requirements of NIS 2. 

Target audience:

Members of supervisory boards, directors and board members, (internal) auditors, CIOs and CISOs and other officials involved in information security and cybersecurity.
