The objective of this pilot session is to collect feedback on a training for OES employees, developed as part of the Action NISDUC.
The session will take place on Wednesday, May 11, from 09:00 - 12:00 / 13:45 - 17:15, in parallel to the main conference.

NIS Implementer?

A NIS Implementer is a coordinator or conductor, the contact person, who by his/her systemic vision knows how to solicit the experts of each element of the system to ensure compliance with the NIS Directive in an organisation.
He/she participates in the sense of coordination and the ability to judge the completeness of a task as a whole (and not in details), he/she coordinates the implementation and does not necessarily have to be the performer of a task (role of a project manager).
He/she does not have to take the place of certain experts even though he/she can of course have operational expertise on some of the tasks concerned by the function.
The NIS Implementer has a duty of accountability that the various processes identified by the NIS Directive are well respected and applied by the various experts that it coordinates.
Need for authority in the company, and even possibly a maximum of independence.
This function can be performed by several people (except in small structures).

The training

Based on a competency framework established in cooperation with experts in the field, the training offers three modules:

  • Risk management
  • Incident management
  • Implementation of security measures

An exam, aiming to check if main concepts are understood and if the trainee can easily find information, will close the session.

Training objectives

  • Training scheme for OES/DSP employees to comply with the requirements of the NIS Directive.
  • Give useful resources.
  • Based on a competency framework defining the knowledge, skills and behaviours required for a NIS Implementer.
