Format: Classroom training course
Training course outline
The Directive on Security of Network and Information Systems (NIS Directive) ((EU) 2016/1148) aims to achieve a high common level of network and information systems security across the EU by introducing security measures and incident reporting obligations for operators of essential services (OESs) and digital service providers (DSPs). The UK government has until May 2018 to translate the Directive into national law, specifying compliance criteria.
The one-day Certified Foundation Training Course will provide a comprehensive introduction to the NIS Directive and a practical understanding of the implications and legal requirements for affected organisations operating in the UK. Delivered by an experienced cyber security practitioner, this training session is built on the foundations of our extensive practical experience gained advising on compliance with international standards, such as ISO 27001 (information security management) and ISO 22301 (business continuity management).
Note: The title of this course will change once the Directive has been transposed into UK law.
