In this session, we first learned about cyber security in 2024, and took a look into the mind of a hacker. Then, the CCB  offered a legal and regulatory perspective, with a focus on how organisations can implement the NIS2 requirements. Howest followed with practical experience and things to take into consideration. Finally, two organisations shared their real-life stories, one implementing NIS2 with the CyberFundamentals (CyFun) framework, and the other using the SOGP (Standard of Good Practice for Information Security) – which is aligned with the ISO 27000-series.

We were delighted to be co-hosting this session with Howest University of Applied Sciences, enabling us to bring academia and business together to explore this topic.
