Action description

The new EU cybersecurity directive NIS-2 still raises many questions. Is our organisation affected at all? What protective measures do we have to implement and by when? And what happens if we do not meet the legal requirements in time?

Three proven experts shed light on the subject and provide answers to the most important questions. Knut Trepte, Senior Product Manager Security at SUSE, talks to Dr. Justus Gaden, lawyer and co-editor of the trade journal "International Cybersecurity Law Review" and Michael Hojnacki, Member of the Board at ProtoSoft and Lead Auditor for Information Security, about the requirements, opportunities and risks of NIS-2. 

Register now for this live discussion and get valuable practical knowledge to make your organisation fit for the new directive:

- The countdown is on: Full details on the NIS-2 implementation timeline.
- Supply chain in focus: Why supply chain protection is becoming increasingly important
- Implementation in concrete terms: Is ISO/IEC 27001 already the solution?
- Common Criteria & Co.: Which certifications make NIS-2 compliance easier
- Legal risks: What threatens organisations that do not do their homework?

Using SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) as an example, the experts discuss what the use of a certified operating system means for legal liability. SLES received Common Criteria EAL 4+ certification from the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) in 2021. The EAL 4+ evaluation level confirms that not only the product but also the entire supply chain meets the highest security requirements for critical infrastructures. Certifications such as these can facilitate the implementation of NIS-2 enormously. 

In addition to legal and technological aspects, the three experts also shed light on typical risk scenarios and show which threats organisations will have to protect themselves against even better in the future.

The last 20 minutes are then reserved for a Q&A session: The experts will answer specific questions from the audience on the application of the NIS-2 directive in practice.
