There’s a saying in security that criminals only have to get lucky once to count a success. This is as true in cyber security and data protection as it is anywhere else – organizations need to be on alert and ready to defend against a possible attack every minute of every hour of every day. There is, sadly, no respite.

Companies don’t have to face this challenge alone, though; governments, regulatory bodies and the wider security industry are increasingly collaborating to introduce best practice and legislation to help increase everyone’s security posture.

One example of this is the NIS2 Directive, which was created by the European Commission in January 2023 with the aim of boosting cyber security across the European Union. It expands on the existing NIS Directive to include new sectors and entities, improving the resilience and incident response capacities of public and private organizations alike. Members of the 27-nation bloc have until 17 October 2024 to transpose the directive into their own legislation and the UK government has also confirmed it plans to update its NIS regulations as well.

With so much to consider, ITPro, in association with Rubrik, bring you an informative webinar to offer you real-world guidance and insight.
