The Network and Information Systems Regulations 2018: Guide for the health sector in England

Department of Health and Social Care, May 2018

The Network and Information Systems (NIS) Regulations came into force on 10 May 2018. The regulations place security and reporting requirements on ‘operators of essential services’, including in the healthcare sector.  The Department of Health and Social Care has incorporated the regulations into its approach to implementing the National Data Guardian’s 10 data security standards. These data security standards apply to all health and care organisations.

This guide sets out what this means in practice for health and care organisations, including compliance with the regulations and how this will be overseen.
