  • Aligning Your Security Program with the NIS Directive by Matt Bromiley - August 16, 2020 

    The NIS Directive, adopted by the European Parliament in 2016, addresses the security of network and information systems within the EU. It also sets forth best practices to encourage better cyberrisk mitigation and incident identification and notification. This whitepaper explores various measures of the NIS Directive and how to align your organization’s security posture with those measures.
