NIS

Be ahead of the new set of compliance
needs that NIS demands

To mollify the growing cybersecurity threats to nation states the European Union is driving a high common level of network and information security across Europe. The NIS Directive became law in May 2018 and it places massive operational and compliance strains on operators of essential services and digital service providers. Yet all too many are still unaware of it.

The NIS Directive is the first piece of EU-wide legislation on cybersecurity. It provides legal measures to boost the overall level of cybersecurity in the EU.

The NIS Directive provides legal measures to boost the overall level of cybersecurity in the EU by ensuring

  • Member States' preparedness by requiring them to be appropriately equipped, e.g. via a Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) and a competent national NIS authority
  • cooperation among all the Member States, by setting up a cooperation group, in order to support and facilitate strategic cooperation and the exchange of information among Member States. They will also need to set a CSIRT Network, in order to promote swift and effective operational cooperation on specific cybersecurity incidents and sharing information about risks,
  • a culture of security across sectors which are vital for our economy and society and moreover rely heavily on ICTs, such as energy, transport, water, banking, financial market infrastructures, healthcare and digital infrastructure. Businesses in these sectors that are identified by the Member States as operators of essential services will have to take appropriate security measures and to notify serious incidents to the relevant national authority. Also, key digital service providers (search engines, cloud computing services and online marketplaces) will have to comply with the security and notification requirements under the new Directive.

As the European Commission is pushing member states to swiftly implement the EU NIS Directive, this will provide substantial opportunities but also a call to action, specifically for affected industry sectors. Specifically, Article 15 of the directive, dealing with implementation and enforcement will place substantial pressure on organizations to ensure that their security culture, processes and infrastructure meet the required standards while benefitting effectively from the CSIRT recommendations.

Consequently, having a best in class security operations framework implemented as well as supporting infrastructure becomes a key requirement. Packet capture and analytics technology hereby becomes a critically important infrastructure element to effectively support cybersecurity operations but equally support compliance efforts.

Fix the big compliance challenges

Risk mitigation

As organizations rapidly adopt new data technologies including AI and cloud-based storage, data risk is becoming a critical concern – compounding the threats of external breaches and negligent employees. Add this to sprawling regulations and massive non-compliance fines and the pressures on data management strategies have never been greater.

Fraud detection

Digital fraud detection is both a broad field and a minefield. A vital focus is the electronic communications between individuals and systems, but successful fraud detection requires an authoritative data source. It also needs a new type of network packet capture platform that is scalable, cost-effective and can be used for effective fraud detection and forensic analysis.

Automated data protection

Data communication networks are the backbone of corporate digital infrastructures: the challenge is collecting and storing an overwhelming amount of data, turning it into business intelligence and enabling the organization to harness its potency. But there’s an even greater challenge: securing exponential data streams - and modern network packet sniffing just isn’t enough.

Lawful interception

Globally, legislative and regulative requirements force telecoms providers to maintain lawful intercept capabilities for traditional circuit and packet-based telecommunications infrastructures. Service providers must rapidly provide network communications data for analysis and evidence. It places operational and capital burden on the business without any business benefit.
