Realise NIS-2 Compliance with KC


The NIS-2 Directive, a key EU regulation in cyber security, is currently in the spotlight.

We ensure a successful NIS-2 implementation program and support you in ensuring compliance!



NIS-2 - What is NIS-2 (Network and Information Security 2)?

With the publication of the NIS-2 Directive on 27 December 2022, the European Union has taken a significant step towards strengthening cybersecurity. The NIS-2 Directive (Directive (EU) 2022/2555) replaces the previous NIS Directive (Directive (EU) 2016/1148) and significantly expands the scope of application and the requirements for companies.

Not least due to the changed global political situation, digital threats against important institutions have attracted the attention of politics and public.

By introducing NIS-2 and implementing NIS-2 standards, the EU is endeavoring to prevent attacks on critical infrastructures and the potentially catastrophic consequences associated with them.

According to the regulation, the affected companies must have implemented the requirements of NIS-2 Directive by 17 October 2024. Essential sectors will then be regularly audited with severe fines. In addition, managing directors and management boards will be liable for violations.

Core Requirements

Core requirements for companies in the context of NIS-2


1. Risk management is a fundamental element of NIS-2 compliance

Effective risk management is a central component of NIS-2 compliance
and plays a crucial role in the information security of companies. A structured approach allows potential threats and vulnerabilities in network and information systems to be identified at an early stage. This proactive approach strengthens resistance to threats and attacks in the long term. The systematic analysis and assessment of risks make it possible to take targeted measures to minimize potential vulnerabilities and better prepare for possible attacks.


2. Information security in the supply chain

Security in the supply chain is a crucial aspect of the NIS-2 requirements. Companies are obliged to ensure that their business partners and service providers implement appropriate security precautions for information security. Contractual agreements in which specific security requirements are defined can play a role here.

The aim is to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive information such as confidential customer data through "supply chain attacks".


3. Reporting procedure

Companies categorized as Critical Infrastructure Operators must notify national cybersecurity authorities of significant disruptions, incidents, and threats to their critical services.
An effective security program with clear policies and procedures for dealing with security incidents is also required, and the ISO 27001 guidelines include requirements for quickly identifying and resolving security incidents, and communicating incidents to customers.
