Mobile device management helps you stay safe against cybercrime and comply with NIS2

As cyber threats become more sophisticated, the European Union is stepping up its efforts to protect critical infrastructure and digital services. The Network and Information Security Directive 2 (NIS2) aims to ensure businesses across the EU are better prepared to handle these challenges. Understanding and complying with NIS2 is essential for safeguarding your organization and maintaining regulatory compliance.

What is the NIS2?

The deadline for national implementation of NIS2 is drawing near. By October 17, 2024, NIS2 must be included in national laws, with the regulations taking effect the following day. NIS2 replaces the original NIS directive and expands its scope to include new operators and industries.

NIS2 mandates that businesses operating in the EU, such as digital service providers (DSPs) and operators of essential services (OES)*, must abide by its regulations.

This directive, which establishes the minimal standards that entities must adhere to in order to guarantee cyber security, is comparable to a rulebook. Consider it a set of rules that DSPs and OESs must abide by to safeguard their users and themselves against online dangers.

Because these regulations are mandated by law, violating them can carry serious consequences, such as heavy fines and damage to one's reputation. On top of that, breaking the rules can have more terrible personal effects, like preventing oneself from receiving essential healthcare services.

What NIS2 expects from organizations

Stay Safe

Organizations must take steps to keep their computer systems and networks safe from hackers and cyber-attacks. This includes secure passwords, updating software, and having contingency plans in place.

Report issues

If a cyber attack or significant IT issue occurs, organizations are required to inform the appropriate authorities. This collaboration helps mitigate the problem and prevents future incidents.

Work Together

NIS2 promotes collaboration among organizations, governments, and other entities to share cyber threat intelligence and support one another's online safety efforts.

 What are the requirements of the NIS2 directive?  

NIS2 emphasizes risk management and cybersecurity, affecting how businesses manage their IT assets and asset lifecycle to maintain the dependability of their critical infrastructure and achieve regulatory compliance. It's crucial to know which devices are in use, why they are being used, and who is using them. Enhanced device registry data from device management tools is essential for automatically responding to new lost or decommissioned devices.

Given the prevalence of mobile devices in remote work, accessing sensitive information, and facilitating communication, securing these devices is critical.
