Wondering how to support the NIS2 Directive? Learn how Immersive Labs helps equip organizations to meet NIS2 compliance

NIS2 is a game-changing EU directive that brings organizational cybersecurity to the forefront with the power to fine, suspend, and transform how critical organizations protect against digital threats.

The NIS2 Directive is a European Union (EU) directive to strengthen cybersecurity, help organizations protect themselves against cyber threats, and ensure that the EU’s digital infrastructure is more secure and resilient. The directive places certain duties and obligations (Duty of Care) on these entities to ensure the security and resilience of their network and information systems.

The directive is officially published, and member states have 21 months – until October 17, 2024 – to integrate its provisions into local legislation. There are four high-level areas of change:

1. Risk Management
2. Corporate Accountability
3. Reporting
4. Business Continuity

Immersive Labs supports multiple NIS2 requirements, including most Duty of Care responsibilities found in Article 21.
