Information security management system (ISMS) in R2C_SECURITY

R2C_SECURITY is software for managing information security in your company. In today's world, information, information processing systems and data are exposed to many dangers.

  • Failure of technology,
  • human error,
  • force majeure,
  • cyber attacks,
  • organizational deficiencies

These are all risks for the security of information in companies. Numerous laws (e.g. IT Security Act, EU GDPR), regulations and industry-specific rules and standards (e.g. B3S, IT security catalog) therefore require systems and rules to ensure information security in a company in the long term. Information is now so important that protecting it is a top priority and must be ensured responsibly and continuously.

High information security thanks to ISMS software

A professional information security management system (ISMS) is crucial in order to successfully meet the requirements and challenges of information security in the company and to maintain the protection goals. ISMS software establishes procedures and rules for the permanent management, control, maintenance and continuous improvement of information security. An ISMS is designed in accordance with ISO standards such as ISO 27001 or the specifications of the BSI. Without the support of software-supported ISMS solutions, successful and long-term operation in accordance with regulatory requirements is not possible in the long term.

The importance of an ISMS in the context of NIS2

An information security management system (ISMS) is an important tool for companies and organisations to meet the requirements of the NIS2 directive. The introduction of an ISMS provides companies with a structured approach to managing information security that helps them to identify their organisation's critical business processes and IT systems, analyse the risks associated with cyber threats, implement appropriate state-of-the-art measures and continuously monitor the security situation in order to detect security incidents at an early stage and respond appropriately.

Two of the leading standards for information security management systems (ISMS) in Germany are ISO 27001 and the BSI IT baseline protection compendium. Both standards provide a recognised framework for setting up, implementing, operating and maintaining an information security management system (ISMS).

For the effective implementation and management of an ISMS, R2C_SECURITY offers you a flexible and open-standard software solution (e.g. ISO 27001, BSI IT baseline protection, B3S, IT security catalogue and many more) with comprehensive functions for setting up, operating and maintaining an ISMS. With R2C_SECURITY, organisations can efficiently manage their information security processes and ensure compliance with recognised norms and standards.

Implementation in Germany and what you need to know about NIS-2-UmsuCG

In the age of digital attacks and advanced cyber threats, the NIS2 Directive is an EU response to increase the resilience of member states to cyber attacks.

The NIS2 Directive sets out requirements that companies and organisations, in particular operators of essential services (OES) and digital service providers (DSPs), must comply with. The requirements include measures to prevent cyber attacks, detect security incidents and respond to these incidents in order to ensure the continuous availability of critical services.

The NIS2 directive ensures that companies and organisations implement appropriate state-of-the-art security measures to protect their systems and critical services from cyber threats.


What is the NIS-2 Directive?

  • NIS is the abbreviation for Network and Information Security

  • The aim is to achieve a common level of cyber security in the European Union (EU)

When does the NIS 2 Directive apply?

  • NIS-2 has been in force at EU level since 2023

  • EU countries are obliged to transpose the directive into national law by 17 October 2024

What is the NIS2UmsuCG?

  • NIS2UmsuCG means NIS-2 Implementation Act

  • The law to implement the NIS 2 Directive in Germany

  • Currently available as the third draft bill from September 2023 and must pass through the legislative process at federal level by October 2024

  • All affected companies and organisations in Germany must meet the requirements of the NIS 2 Implementation Act

Who is affected by the NIS2UmsuCG?

  • NIS2 implementation affects more than 30 thousand companies and organisations in Germany

  • Operators of critical facilities (KRITIS operators)

  • Particularly important facilities

  • Important organisations

  • Federal institutions

The companies and organisations in Germany affected by the NIS2 Implementation Act consist of four groups:

  • Operators of critical facilities (KRITIS facilities)
  • Operators of particularly important facilities
  • Operators of important facilities
  • Operators of federal facilities


When the NIS 2 Implementation Act comes into force, there will be two groups of sectors in future:

  • KRITIS sectors
  • Sectors for important facilities (defined in Annex 1 & 2 NIS-2-UmsuCG)

Operators of critical facilities (KRITIS facilities):

  • The previous KRITIS operators, the critical infrastructures, will become operators of critical facilities. At the same time, the operators become particularly important facilities
  • The KRITIS logic of KRITIS sectors, critical services and KRITIS facilities with threshold values (usually ≥ 500 thousand households supplied) is retained here

Particularly important facilities

  • Large companies in the facilities sectors and some companies regardless of their size:
    • Companies with 250 or more employees or
    • Companies with a turnover of EUR 50 million or more and a balance sheet of EUR 43 million or more or
    • Special cases: qTSP, TLD, DNS, telecommunications providers, critical facilities, central government
  • KRITIS system operators

Important facilities

  • Medium-sized companies in the facilities sectors
    • Companies with 50 or more employees or
    • Companies with a turnover of EUR 10 million or more and a balance sheet of EUR 10 million or more or
    • Trust services.

The NIS 2 Implementation Act provides for various deadlines for the implementation of the requirements, with the NIS2UmsuCG Act itself expected to come into force in October 2024.

For the affected groups, registration in accordance with §33 (1) and (2) must take place within three months of the NIS2UmsuCG coming into force.

For operators of critical facilities, the first proof of the implementation of measures must be provided no later than a date specified by the BSI (Federal Office for Information Security) and BBK (Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance) upon registration, which is no earlier than three years after the Act comes into force in accordance with Section 39 (1) - i.e. from 2027.

For particularly important organisations, the law stipulates that participation in the exchange of information must take place within one year of the NIS2UmsuCG coming into force in accordance with Section 30 (7).

The registration obligation applies to important institutions.

An audit is a quality management tool that examines whether the defined protection objectives have been achieved, the relevant security requirements are met and the company's critical assets are adequately protected. Internal and external audits as well as self-audits can be carried out in Schleupen's ISMS software. Which norms and standards, which sub-areas thereof or which business processes are to be audited can be decided according to the situation.

In addition to the comprehensive options within an audit, our ISMS software can define audit procedures for each audit checkpoint and document random samples and results. In the event of deviations, findings are created, comprehensively described and assigned to a responsible person. Standard evaluations and reports present the audit results in a reliable, transparent and comprehensible manner.

Our ISMS software offers effective management of your information security and is still very user-friendly and intuitively understandable. Benefit now from the numerous advantages of Schleupen's ISMS software:
