Privileged Access Management is key to achieving compliance with the NIS/NIS2 Directives

Adopted on July 6, 2016, the NIS (Network Infrastructure Security) Directive was transposed by the European Union Member States on May 9, 2018. This guideline has helped to homogenize the long national security practices of Member States, as well as to strengthen the protection of Operators of Essential Services (OESs) and Digital Service Providers (DSPs) against cyber threats.

In view of the technological developments and the consequences of the health crisis, the European Commission decided to update this NIS Directive by presenting a new proposal on December 16, 2020, “the NIS2 Directive”.

This white paper explains the impact of the revised NIS Directive – also known as the NIS2 Directive – on the cybersecurity practices of critical or important European entities and demonstrates how privileged access, endpoint, and identity management solutions can already help them comply.
