Combine the real and digital worlds securely – with Cybersecurity for Industry

The threat of cyber attacks against industrial plants is real and their frequency is constantly increasing. The comprehensive protection of industrial plants against cyber attacks requires an approach that covers all levels simultaneously – from the operational to the field level and from the protection of data to secure communication.

Find out more about our Cyber Security solutions and how we can help, speak with our experts.

The Challenge

Industries harnessing the potential of digitalisation become open to the risk of cyber threats.

One of the industries' greatest challenges of digitalisation is optimally and securely handling data at all times.

The growing connection between production networks and office networks as part of IT/OT integration and the utilisation of the Internet of Things have many benefits for industrial companies, including digitalised processes and cross-company collaboration in ecosystems. At the same time, they also increase the risk of cyber threats. With our industrial cyber security solutions, we enable the comprehensive protection of systems and plants.

Megatrends bring a lot of challenges to industries

The increasing cyber security attacks coming from the increasing amount of data and connected devices driven by digitalisation, and the higher security risk caused by a growing complexity of data usage and open networks remains a challenge to many industries.

Despite the significant advancement in technology today, the industry is still missing relevant knowledge on how to deal with cybersecurity challenges in addition to the lack of skilled workforce on the market due to the many specific skills needed for the topic.

Because of the growing threats, more security compliance are being implemented and there is more to follow. There is also a great deal of difficulty in understanding the status of then facility and preventing human errors that affect the security of the solution.

Ensuring remote work-independent of the location, and securing the data exchange and communication between and within globally working companies remains a struggle for many industries while addressing the growing demands of globalisation. 

Cybersecurity is even more important now than before.

  • Exponential growth of vulnerabilities with digitalisation increases the attack surface
  • Connected factories are ill-equipped to defend against cyber attacks
  • Clients need end-to-end OT services and solutions

The NIS 2 Directive

The importance of Industrial Cybersecurity is growing as threats increase. Legislators are requiring more and more industries and companies to improve the protection of their businesses and customers. 

As of October 17, 2024, the EU’s mandatory cybersecurity directive, NIS 2, will be implemented and is expected to enter into force at that time or for the foreseeable future thereafter. Companies in certain industries must demonstrably take appropriate cybersecurity measures and report serious incidents. Find out if you are affected and how we can support you!

Stricter cybersecurity regulations in the EU

The EU has introduced a new cybersecurity legislation called the Network and Information Security 2 (NIS 2) Directive. This directive represents a significant enhancement to the existing NIS directive, mandating EU Member States to adopt and rigorously enforce stricter cybersecurity regulations.


By 17 October 2024, Member States must adopt and publish the measures necessary to comply with the NIS 2 Directive. They shall apply those measures from 18 October 2024.

Find out if your company is subject to the NIS 2 Directive

The scope of the NIS 2 directive encompasses all organisations, including companies and suppliers, that play a crucial role in sustaining the European economy and society by delivering essential or important services. If your organisation falls under any of the following categories and meets the criteria of having more than 50 employees and a turnover exceeding €10 million, compliance with the NIS 2 directive becomes mandatory.

Improve resilience against cybercrime

The new NIS 2 Directive aims to enhance the resilience and incident response capabilities of both the public and private sectors. The directive specifically focuses on combatting cybercrime and improving both European and national cybersecurity management.

The NIS-2 Directive was published in the Official Journal L333 of the European Union on December 27, 2022. It comes into force on the twentieth day following its publication. Member States must transpose the directive into national law within 21 months of its entry into force.

Facts that management should be aware of.

The management bodies of essential and important entities approve the cybersecurity risk management measures taken by those entities to comply with the NIS 2 minimum cybersecurity risk management measures (Article 21). They oversee their implementation and can be held liable for violations of this article by the entities.

Members of the management bodies of essential and important entities are required to undergo training, and shall encourage essential and important entities to provide similar training to their employees on a regular basis.

Updated EU cybersecurity requirements

NIS 2 is an updated version of NIS that provides improved guidance and clarity on the EU’s cybersecurity requirements. It expands the scope of essential and important entities, specifies management liabilities, outlines how controls should be carried out, and addresses how breaches should be reported. For the first time, directors are liable with their personal assets if they fail to comply with legal requirements. In summary, NIS 2 is an enhanced version of NIS that offers more comprehensive and detailed cybersecurity guidelines.
