For tens of thousands of people, the last weekend in May 2017 proved to be one they’d rather forget. A power failure at a British Airways data centre led to more than 650 flights being cancelled and chaos at many airports.

The incident was a timely example of the kind of disruption to essential services which the recently implemented Network and Information Systems (NIS) Regulation aims to reduce the risk of.

Minimising the impact of incidents – whether from cyber-attacks, power cuts or hardware failure – is a key objective of the NIS Regulation. Understanding and managing the security risks to networks and information systems from dependencies on external suppliers is an important part of that.

In the modern business environment, third party suppliers are involved at every level of organisations, from IT managed services, cloud or data centre infrastructure through to security staff, call agents and contract engineers. Understanding your requirements and how to mitigate the risks within your supply is crucial.

Our event will look to introduce the NIS Regulation, help to clarify the what an Operator of Essential Services (OES) is and how to secure your supply chain. This is a great opportunity to get a step ahead in your compliance.
