NIS DIRECTIVE REQUIREMENTS FOR OPERATORS OF ESSENTIAL SERVICES

The NIS Directive requires a set of measures that are to be implemented in terms of network and information security, starting with the 17th of November 2020. These measures are mandatory for digital service providers (DSPs) that provide IXP, DNS and TLD services and for operators of essential services (OES) in the following sectors:

ABOUT NIS DIRECTIVE - LAW no. 362/2018

Starting 12 of January 2019, the NIS Directive (EU Directive 2016/1148 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 6th July 2016) has been passed into national law no. 362/2018 by Romanian Parliament, in order to achieve a high common standard of network and information security across all Union member states that provide essential services for society.

As services rely more and more on IT network infrastructures, these measures aim to strengthen the level of preparedness of EU states in front of cyber security threats, thus leveraging the general trust in the Digital Single Market.

The NIS Directive therefore is an essential European regulation that ensures the sustainability of the new digital economy. Through Law no. 362/2018, the National Incident Response Center of Cyber Security ("CERT-RO") has been designated as the national competent authority for security of networks and information systems in accordance with the EU NIS Directive.
