Today, June 29, 2018, the first workshop of the project “Enhanced National Cyber Security Services and Capabilities for Interoperability – eCSI” was held in Constanta.
More than 40 representatives from the public, private and academic environment discussed the best interconnection methods at the National Cyber Security Platform developed within the project. The capabilities developed will allow for the interconnection of the CERT-RO platform with the European-developed cooperation platform and will help ensure CERT-RO compliance with the requirements of the NIS Directive.
At European level, EU Directive 2016/1148 (NIS Directive) seeks to ensure a high common level of security in the Member States, both through European cooperation mechanisms and by imposing an obligation on Member States to have a suitable regulatory framework for to ensure that incidents are notified and minimum security measures are taken by service providers in seven key sectors and by digital service providers. The seven key sectors are: Transport, Energy, Drinking Water, Infrastructure of the Financial Market, Banking, Medical, Digital Infrastructure.
In this context, the eCSI project, co-financed 75% by the European Interconnection Mechanism (CEF Telecom), aims to extend CERT-RO’s cyber security capabilities and cyber security services at the level of national network by developing a National Cyber Security Platform that will connect the public and private organizations in Romania and the establishment of a Call Center on Cyber Security and a Malware Investigation and Investigation Laboratory.
