The goal of the Network and Information Systems Regulations of 2018 (“NIS Regulations”) is to drive improvement in the protection of the Network and Information Systems which are critical for the delivery of the UK’s essential services.

This guidance gives information to Competent Authorities established under the NIS Regulations, and decision makers within those Competent Authorities, to help them:

  • Establish an appropriate oversight and enforcement regime for the NIS Regulations;
  • Assess the compliance by Operators of Essential Services (OESs) and Digital Service Providers (DSPs) in meeting the requirements of the NIS Regulations; and
  • Develop a framework for national and international cooperation.

Further information on the NIS Regulations and NIS Directive can be found here.
