The regulatory requirements on the horizon like NIS2*, CRA*, DORA*, CSA*, and the ever-evolving GDPR dictate that you need to work with cybersecurity in a market-established, structured, and accepted way. The number of regulatory requirements will only continue to grow, so it’s high time to make sure your business is well prepared for a new fun?! future.
Working With Information Security
So, what’s a market-established, structured, and accepted way of working with information security?
The two most established ways on the market for working with information security are the ISO/IEC 27001:2022 Standard and the NIST Framework. They both strive to give you practices for handling the information security domain with a risk-based approach. Using one of these enables you to take the guessing and “reinventing the wheel” part out of the work and focus on implementation.
It’s worth mentioning that even though all the details of how the EU countries will choose to implement these regulatory requirements, the majority of them will require an established and well-functioning information security practice.
Handling the New Requirements
So, how do you ensure your current information security practice is equipped to handle the new requirements?
In order to confirm that your practice is established and mature, you need to make sure processes and procedures are working as intended, and the board is aware of the key information security risks. Then, you’re well-equipped to meet new regulatory requirements.
When new regulatory requirements like NIS2 and DORA arrive, all you need to do is adjust and fine-tune your processes and procedures to meet the new requirements.
This will enable you to continue to focus on the business goal since the new regulatory requirements will become more of a speed bump than a major business disruption.
