For enterprises with operations in the EU, complying with the Directive on Security of Network and Information Systems, or NIS Directive, can be challenging. This critical piece of legislation helped boost cybersecurity protections within the EU but may also imply necessary changes and/or investments from your organization.

In the midst of dealing with a cyber incident or data breach is not the time to consider whether you are compliant. In this webcast, we will explore how to best align your organizations security posture with the NIS directive. SANS instructor Matt Bromiley and Fortinet representatives Peter Newton and Antoine D'Haussy will explain how the Fortinet ecosystem can strengthen your security posture and simplify compliance. The presentation will focus on:

  • Platform-based security for enterprise defense
  • Interoperability with country-specific resources
  • Interweaving risk identification and analysis across the organization

Be among the first to receive the associated whitepaper written by Matt Bromiley and the companion paper, a Fortinet product review written by Jason Christopher.
