Aligning Your Security Program with the NIS Directive

In July 2016, the European Parliament adopted the NIS Directive (referred to as “the Directive” throughout this paper), which addresses the security of network and information systems. The Directive was adopted to establish legal measures to increase cybersecurity capabilities within the EU across its multiple Member States and various operators. The Directive also set forth best practices to encourage better cyberrisk mitigation and incident identification and notification. In this whitepaper, we explore various measures of the Directive and how to align your organization’s security posture with these measures.
