Free Webinar The Implications of the NIS Directive

What’s in it for you and your business?
The Insurance industry is taking a hard look at the NIS Directive in terms of where they see the risk balance between themselves and essential services organisations. Remediation activity to comply with NIS requirements will be considered favourably, whilst non-compliance may leave businesses without cover. Similarly, directors should consider the personal liability that falls upon them for any critical infrastructure disruption that occurs and the reputational damage that could ensue.

Impact of NIS
The breach reporting and penalty mechanisms are the same as for GDPR, so that CNI organisations that experience Business Interruption will suffer fines of up to £17m.

Kevin Borley states: "The NIS webinar will include all the interfaces and technologies an organisation has dependencies on, inside or outside its internal departments that relate to NIS.

Particularly its supply chain – if the disruption of which impacts the services managed by an operator of essential service. Think Railway and maintenance providers to signalling and train equipment. For airports think Air Traffic control, security and ground handling services.

In these worlds not only do standards need to be set but assistance needs to be given to the supply chain to understand their obligations to an Operator responsible under NIS an Operator under NIS needs to take responsibility for checking their supply chain doesn’t put them at risk………

Presumably long established contracts need re writing, security principles agreed, audits and standards defined etc……….."
