The New Network & Information Security Directive - Are You Prepared for May?
Those affected by the NIS need to have in place by 9 May 2018 for sufficient and adequate security measures, processes and documented procedures to ensure continuity of service and the ability to identify and deal expeditiously with any 'cyber incident' such as hacking, ransomware, denial of service attacks and 'disasters' such as data centre power outages, floods or lightning strikes.
The NIS is far from being limited to personal data: Being GDPR compliant is most unlikely to make an affected organisation NIS compliant. Non-compliance, even if there were no 'cyber incident', could lead to severe fines in line with GDPR penalties. There will be mandatory reporting requirements which you need to follow.
The public and private sectors affected by the NIS Directive include energy, transport, banking, credit providers, other financial institutions, healthcare services, water supplies, as well as digital service providers ('DSPs') including digital infrastructure providers.
