How does NIS work?

Back to Wiki

The directive on security of Network and Information Systems (NIS) ensures member states are prepared, and provides legal measures to boost the overall level of cybersecurity in the EU. NIS requires member states to be appropriately equipped in several ways, including Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRT) and a competent national NIS authority.

Businesses that are identified as Operators of Essential Services (OES) have to take appropriate security measures and notify serious incidents to relevant national authority. Key digital service providers including search engines, cloud computing services and online marketplaces also have to comply with the security and notification requirements under the NIS directive.
