Network and Information Security (NIS)

Duration

2 days

Overview

On May 25, 2018, the new European Network and Information Security Regulations (NIS in short) came into effect.

This regulation is a response to the increasing number of cyber attacks. It means that companies from different branches need to create a safety culture and prepare themselves to limit the chance and impact of such cyber attacks. Europe wants to prepare businesses and make them resilient.

The regulation expects organizations to evaluate risks systematically, and to invest in e.g. business continuity, incident management and third party management. The regulation is aimed at agents who play a role in society or on the free market, which means that companies in the digital economy won’t remain unimpacted. Think of cloud service providers, online market places, and so on.

The Campus and Head Forward organise a two-day training on October 24 and 25, where we will discuss the legislation and its four points.

Course Objectives

Participants return home with insight in the legal framework and the new, stricter requirements, and they know how to get started with Information Security Managament within their organization. They know about the new best practices according to the internationally recognized standards. Finally, they will have acquired some hands-on experience, and they will have a first basis to get started with a NIS-compliance trajectory in their own organization.

Prerequisites

This training is recommended for companies who are currently not making information security efforts in a structured or systematic way, but who are under effect of the legislation. Both people on the business and the technical side of the organization will benefit from this training (management and coordinators, IT managers, CISOs, DPOs, …). Lastly, this training can also have and added value for professionals who want to learn about this specific topic.
