The NIS Directive brings new obligations to operators of essential services. It defines their role to prevent and report cyber incidents, with specific liabilities. The NIS Directive is important to strengthen the security of Operators of Essential Services in the UK and across the EU.
This training is GCHQ certified and is ideal for regulators, security auditors, safety and security managers at operators of essential services and infrastructure managers.
In this 5-day training, participants will learn about the NIS Directive and its requirements. We will learn how to assess the current readiness level, and how to develop a roadmap towards compliance. We will present the NCSC Cyber Assessment Framework and discuss on a list of existing good practices to strengthen security and demonstrate compliance with the requirements of the NIS Directive.
