Sneak Preview

EU Member States are obligated to integrate NIS2 into their existing cyber security legislation by 17th October 2024, and those organisations and sectors impacted should plan ahead in order to align their cyber defences and strategy with the required stipulations within plenty of time, as penalties associated with NIS2 non-compliance will be severe, ranging from fines, to legal consequences and reputational impact, with senior management to be held directly liable in cases of gross negligence.

Once in effect, the EU Commission behind the NIS2 directive will periodically review its practical functioning, reporting back on its findings for the first time in October 2027.
