Critical challenges
need critical partners.

Achieve cyber maturity  for critical national infrastructure.  


  • As critical national infrastructure (CNI) operators increasingly rely on digitalised services to improve operations and meet the increasing expectations of customers, the attack surface increases and with it, the prospect of potentially life-threatening disruption, regulatory penalties and reputational damage.

    As a leading integrator of network and security services to enterprises around the globe, Verizon is uniquely positioned to help industry respond to the growing threats. Our extensive expertise in securing and managing networks and systems, threat monitoring and rapid response helps our customers thwart attacks, and reduce the impact should an attack be successful. 

Securing how we work, live and play

A recent study1 of U.K. CNI organisations found that the vast majority (86%) had detected a cyberattack on their operational technology (OT) or industrial control systems (ICS) in the previous 12 months. And almost all (93%) of those admitted that at least one attack had been successful.

Read about the threats, the actors behind them and what practical steps you can take to help mitigate the risk.

    • New legislation expands the definition of critical infrastructure.

    • New legislation, COVID disruption and escalating cybersecurity threats have highlighted how vital critical infrastructure is to how we live, work and play.

      One example of new legislation, the Directive (EU) 2022/2555, known as NIS2, came into force on 16 January 2023.* It replaced Directive (EU) 2016/1148, updated the minimum cybersecurity standards expected of the operators of essential services and took over the cybersecurity requirements of the telecoms regulatory framework (EECC).

      It extends the definition of what organisations count as CNI and introduces tougher reporting requirements.

      * EU Member states have until October 2024 to enact NIS2 in national legislation.

    • Previous (NIS) legislation covered:

      • Healthcare
      • Transport
      • Banking and financial infrastructure
      • Digital infrastructure and digital services providers
      • Water supply
      • Energy

    • The new legislation (NIS2) also covers organisations with over 50 employees and €10M annual revenue involved in: 

      • Electronic communications networks and services
      • Space
      • Waste water and waste management
      • Food
      • Critical product manufacturing e.g. pharmaceuticals, medical devices and chemicals
      • Postal services

  • Security isn’t
    something you claim,
    it’s something
    you prove.

    Verizon is a global provider of communications, network and security solutions, and has a wealth of knowledge around global, regional and industry standards and compliance frameworks  e.g. ISO27001, Data Protection Act 2018 (UK) and Center for Internet Security (CIS) Top 18 Critical Security Controls for Effective Cyber Defense.
