Polish Parliament Enacts National Cybersecurity SystemPolish Parliament Enacts National Cybersecurity System
The system classifies security incidents and splits national incident response into three separate teams.
August 28, 2018
The Parliament of Poland today passed into law a new act that will fully implement the NIS Directive, the European Union's directive on security of network and information systems.
Poland's goal for its new national cybersecurity system is to ensure security for information systems throughout the country. The system comprises several moving parts, all in different sectors and all of which are working together to improve security. Entities include service operators in critical industries (energy, transport, healthcare); digital service providers; computer security incident response teams (CSIRTs); and a government body appointed by the prime minister focused on cybersecurity policies.
The system also includes an advisory cybersecurity council, which operates alongside the Council of Ministers, to guide security-related matters and streamline the exchange of information on security incidents with other EU nations. Another entity includes different companies providing security services and handling incidents in their networks.
In addition, the act splits incident response for cyberattacks in Poland's cyberspace among three incident response teams. One is organized within the Internal Security Agency, one is within the Research and Academic Computer Network (NASK), and one is under the Ministry of National Security.
The EU NIS Directive was created to secure network and information systems across the European Union. Its regulations apply to operators of essential services established within the EU and digital service providers offering services to people in the region. It was implemented into UK law in May 2018.
