NIS2 (Network and Information Systems Directive) Foundation Course

A two-day course delivered online or in a classroom covering the new NIS2 requirements effective from October 2024.

This course covers the requirements of the Directive, including the required controls, management of risks, management's responsibilities, incident reporting and supervision. It puts the NIS2 Directive's requirements into the context of a management system against ISO/IEC 27001 for information security (ISMS) and ISO 22301 for business continuity (BCMS), emphasizing the responsibility of top management. The course material also includes relevant best practices for the selection of controls (ISO 27002 and NIST CSF), management of risk (ISO 27005 and IEC 31010) and business impact analysis (ISO 22317).
The course ends with an examination. The exam is taken online directly after the course via DNV’s Learning Management System (LMS) without aids and lasts one hour. It consists of 40 multiple-choice questions. A pass mark is achieved with at least 28/40 (70%) correct answers. If the exam is passed, the NIS2 Foundation course certificate is obtained. The course includes a free re-sit exam within 12 months of the first exam.
