ENISA releases online NIS Directive tool showing per sector the national authorities for operators of essential services and digital service providers

The NIS Directive tool is intended as a one-stop shop for experts from the industry linking to relevant ENISA work, national cybersecurity strategies, the CSIRT network, and the NIS Cooperation group website.

This year all EU member states are implementing the NIS directive in their countries. The NIS Directive is the first piece of EU-wide cybersecurity legislation, proposed by the European Commission as part of the EU Cybersecurity strategy.

EU directives give EU member states flexibility to take into account national circumstances, for example to re-use existing organizational structures or to integrate with existing national legislation. That also means that the authorities and laws are different from country to country and from sector to sector. Every country designates different supervisory authorities.

For the industry and cybersecurity experts, it is important to know the relevant national authorities and laws under the NIS Directive in their subsector. This online tool takes you directly to the supervising authorities in each sector.

The tool, being sector-specific, complements the European Commission’s online map showing the transposition status per EU member state. ENISA will update this tool following the developments in the EU Member States.
