NIS2 Regulation and vulnerability management

NIS 2 Regulation is out

 

The European Union has recently introduced a revised Network and Information Systems Directive, or NIS2, which aims to improve the cybersecurity of essential services and digital service providers across the EU.

This new regulation replaces the original NIS Directive, adopted in 2016

NIS2 extends the directive’s reach to include additional industries and digital service providers. This means that more organizations across the EU are subject to the requirements

of the directive, including those in the water supply and distribution sector, the food supply sector, and the digital infrastructure sector.

 

How does NIS2 impact your application security and vulnerability management program?

NIS 2 Impact on Vulnerability Managment

How does NIS2 impact your application security and vulnerability management program?

  1. 1. Risk assessment: Article 14(1) of the NIS 2 regulation requires operators of essential services and digital service providers to “identify and assess the risks posed to the security of their network and information systems.” This includes conducting a risk assessment that considers the “likelihood and impact of a security incident.”
  2. Incident management: Article 14(2) of the NIS 2 regulation requires operators of essential services and digital service providers to “establish and implement appropriate and proportionate technical and organizational measures to manage the risks posed to the security of network and information systems” and to “detect and promptly respond to incidents.”
  3. Security measures: Article 14(3) of the NIS 2 regulation requires operators of essential services and digital service providers to “take into account state of the art” and to implement “appropriate and proportionate technical and organizational measures” to ensure the security of their network and information systems.
  4. Testing and evaluation: Article 14(4) of the NIS 2 regulation requires operators of essential services and digital service providers to “regularly test and evaluate the effectiveness” of their security measures, including “vulnerability assessments, including penetration testing.”
