Netherlands: NCSC publishes guidance on cybersecurity measures

The National Cyber Security Centre ('NCSC') published, on 28 June 2021, guidance on cybersecurity measures to increase the digital resilience of companies and organisations. Moreover, the guidance describes the context in which organisations can implement these measures and how these measures support regular risk management.

In particular, the guidance lists eight basic measures that the NCSC believes are necessary to protect organisations against current digital threats which, among other things, includes:

  • identifying, testing, and installing updates to the software;
  • ensuring that applications and systems generate sufficient log information; and
  • applying multi-factor authentication to relevant accounts.

In respect of the measures, the guidance emphasises that they are intended to support organisations on regular risk management processes, however it is recommended that organisations perform their own risk analysis.
