The NIS (Network and Information Security) Directive is an EU-directive that demands security in networks and information systems for essential and certain digital services. All organizations that carry out important activities such as energy supply and healthcare must work both systematically with their information security - and also be able to demonstrate compliance. The background to the NIS-directive is the increased threat of various foreign powers and the increased risk of sabotage that can cause extensive economic damage and damage to society.
