THE D-SEAL HELPS YOU THROUGH STRICTER EU REQUIREMENTS
In 2024, a new IT security directive (NIS2) will enter into force. According to a new mapping, this will strengthen IT security and initially affect more than 1,000 companies across 12 sectors.
– More companies may be directly affected by the directive. Still, it depends on how the law is implemented in Denmark, says Morten Rosted Vang, Head of Digital Responsibility and Cyber Security at the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI).
In addition, Morten Rosted Vang emphasises that important suppliers to the affected companies will feel the NIS2 requirements. Should any affected companies get caught in non-compliance with the requirements, fines of up to two per cent of the company’s global turnover will be imposed.
– If the authorities follow their usual approach and implement NIS2 according to the sectoral responsibility principle, they may need help recruiting enough staff for the many new supervisory units in relevant ministries. The same cyber competencies are also needed in the private sector. At the same time, companies could end up drowning in bureaucracy if the various authorities implement the rules differently. We could potentially end up in a situation where companies subject to several sectors must comply with multiple requirements and supervisory regimes, says Morten Rosted Vang.
The D-seal is your guarantee.
Fortunately, there’s a solution. Companies and organisations can ensure compliance with the minimum requirements by becoming D-sealed.
– The D-seal is based on European and internationally recognised standards and frameworks. There is a good alignment between the criteria and requirements of the D-seal and the NIS2 Directive’s requirements for governance and anchoring in the management as well as requirements for risk management and security measures and the NIS2 Directive’s minimum requirements as a whole, Morten Rosted Vang says.
In general, he encourages companies to use the D-seal.
– Responsible IT is essential to maintain confidence in the extensive digitalisation of our world. With the D-seal, you signal responsibility and can document customer compliance with authorities. You can sleep better knowing you’ve done what you could prevent digital accidents or crime, says Morten Rosted Vang.
A UNITED DENMARK IS BEHIND THE D-SEAL!
The Danish Industry Foundation is behind the D-seal in collaboration with the Confederation of Danish Industry, the Danish Chamber of Commerce, SMVdanmark and the Danish Consumer Council Think. The Danish Business Authority supports the D-seal. The Authority is an independent private organisation.
