NIS2 with a Focus on Securing the Supply Chain

Recent incidents all over the world have proven the importance of continuity within critical supply chains (i.e. supply chain must function and continue to flow smoothly), which is why NIS2 has introduced it as one of its key focus points. Individual organizations will be responsible for addressing cyber security risks in their own supply chains as well as within supplier relationships.

Millions of Suppliers Must Comply with NIS2

This supply chain requirement might indirectly influence many suppliers who are not considered to be in the scope of the new NIS2 Directive but might nevertheless deliver services or products to an in-scope NIS2 entity. Hence, their customer might impose a minimal cyber security maturity. The supplier will not be supervised by the national authorities regarding NIS2, but rather by their customer. Therefore, NIS2 might still impact a supplier depending on its service and sector. 

This means that millions of organizations within and outside of the EU will have to comply with NIS2 as a supplier.
