Everything you need to know about NIS2

Webinar The original European Union Network and Information Security (NIS) Directive certainly led to an improvement in member states’ cybersecurity defences, but it struggled to do everything required as cyberattacks and threats scaled up with the growth in digitalization.

It’s successor, the NIS2 Directive, becomes law in October 2024 and has been designed to turbocharge the cybersecurity of critical infrastructure. More than 160,000 companies will be affected, with a maximum €10m fine for non-compliance.

The new legislation expands the NIS security requirements, the scope of covered organizations and sectors. It’s designed to improve the security of supply chains, simplify reporting obligations, and enforce more stringent measures and sanctions throughout Europe. It will become extremely important for organisations to prepare and demonstrate that NIS2 compliance is taken seriously, and appropriate actions have been taken before the October deadline.

Join the Register’s Tim Phillips on 28 February at 1pm GMT/8am ET/5am PT to find out more with Dr. Carsten Huth, Global Head of AppSec Advisory at Checkmarx and Reinier Landsman, Managing Director and Co-Founder at Cert2Connect. Carsten and Reinier will highlight the Directive’s relevant articles, make clear what they mean for application security and offer advice on how to prepare for compliance.

If you’re still in the dark on how best to plan and implement NIS2 compliance, this is a good one to watch. Sign up to access the webinar here.
