How to Effectively Prepare for NIS2

In less than one year, NIS2 will become effective. Are you prepared?

The NIS2 Directive will impact the majority of organizations operating in the EU, since it expands its scope and requirements to achieve a higher level of cybersecurity controls for critical infrastructure.

According to Gartner, “Affected security and risk management leaders will need to assess the new changes to ensure their organization will meet its obligations by 18 October 2024.”1

The Gartner® report helps you to effectively prepare for NIS2 by outlining focus areas and suggesting concrete action items, with the four main areas being:

  • 1. Cyber Risk Management
  • 2. Corporate Accountability
  • 3. Reporting obligations
  • 4. Business Continuity

Followed by other areas which include cryptography, incident management, access control, asset management, and more. Utimaco welcomes and encourages you to read this report as we support and applaud the planned strengthening of cybersecurity in the EU.
