The Challenge

The NIS2 Directive is the EU-wide legislation on cybersecurity. The aim of this Directive is to boost the overall level of cybersecurity in the EU and to ensure that a high level of common cybersecurity measures are adopted across the Union (NIS2 Directive).

The EU cybersecurity Network and Information Security Directive rules, first introduced in 2016, are updated by the NIS2 Directive that came into force in January 2023. It modernised the existing legal framework to keep up with increased digitisation and an evolving cybersecurity threat landscape.

By expanding the scope of the cybersecurity rules to cover new sectors and entities, it looks to further improve the resilience and incident response capacities of public and private entities, competent authorities and the EU as a whole.

A wide variety of market sectors have been identified to comply with the security and notification requirements under the NIS2 Directive. Companies in sectors such as ICT Service Management, Financial Market Infrastructures, Cloud Computing, Healthcare and Medical Devices are now part of the scope.

The businesses identified by the Member States as essential and important entities in the above sectors will have to formalise cybersecurity management to meet the requirements of the Directive.
