Protecting the UK’s Infrastructure


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.

Attacks on essential services pose a risk of significant damage and disruption to the UK’s infrastructure and economy, and the NIS looks to bring a greater degree of scrutiny and accountability to policies, procedures and practices employed by organisations in protecting their systems and their data.

Businesses and organisations covered by NIS will have to ensure they have appropriate security measures in place to protect networks and data against cyber security incidents. They will also need to report serious incidents to regulators. A serious incident of non-compliance can lead to a £17 million fine.

Having the right information at hand is crucial and this page will aim to provide the necessary backdrop for organisations to understand their requirements.
