NIS 2 Certified Professional course

2 full-days | 3 afternoons

Discover the right approach to prepare your organisation for the NIS2 directive and the Cybersecurity Act.

During the NIS 2 Certified Professional course, you will learn the right approach to make your organisation compliant with the NIS2 Directive and the (soon-to-be) Cybersecurity Act. Your organisation must comply to this by October 2024 at the latest.

Since the requirements differ between sectors and organisations, it is not recommended to memorise the text of the guideline and take an exam for this to obtain a certificate. Instead, it makes more sense to learn how to properly prepare your organisation in your role as NIS2 implementation coordinator. This course consists of two days in which you will learn an effective method to tackle this process in the context of NIS2. In addition, one or more days of guidance are available on request to get specific guidance on this approach for your organisation.

The end result of this NIS 2 Certified Professional is that, in addition to knowledge and skills about the right approach, you will have made a start with an ‘Implementation NIS2’ plan tailored to your organisation.

This course requires basic knowledge of Information Security. If you do not posses this, we recommend taking the Information Security Foundation course first.
