In today’s globalized economy, information technology (IT) is critical for companies in the food industry. With the increasing threats of cyber attacks and data leaks, companies in the EU need to strengthen their IT security to ensure the continuity of their business and guarantee the confidentiality of their data. This is where the NIS 2.0 directive comes in: a necessary approach to IT security in the food industry. NIS 2.0 stands for Network and Information Security and aims to help companies in the EU secure their IT infrastructure.

By implementing NIS 2.0, companies in the food industry in the EU can achieve the following benefits:

1. Strengthening IT security

NIS 2.0 includes a set of best practices and standards to help companies protect their IT infrastructure and prevent external attacks. These include measures such as implementing firewalls, encrypting data and regularly reviewing security protocols.

2. Improve business continuity

By implementing NIS 2.0, companies in the EU can improve their business continuity by protecting their IT systems from failures and disruptions. This is particularly important in the food industry, where an interruption in production can have serious consequences.
