The NIS Directive and the Digital Single Market- what does the cloud need?
The need for a strong and effective EU Network and Information Security (NIS) Industry has become two-fold; on the one hand the Digital Single Market needs protection, which implies a strong European network and information security (NIS) sector, able to ensure protection for commercial services, the critical infrastructure and the everyday life of its citizens, who will be increasingly dependent on online services. Cloud computing is one of the business models in the focus of both the DSM strategy and the NIS Directive; how do these regulatory measures and guidelines affect the Cloud adoption and which are the market trends are some of the topics included in this presentation.
Dimitra Liveri has been working in ENISA since March 2013 as a Networks and Information security expert, focusing on cloud computing supporting critical information infrastructures. In 2015 she launched the topic of eHealth cyber security and since then she is in charge of the eHealth security and resilience work under the Secure Infrastructures and Services unit, a closer approach from the CIIP perspective. On the policy part she is dealing with the wider topic of cyber security strategies on national level and how the member states can enhance security in their network and information systems and CIIs. She holds a BSc and a MSc on Computer Science – with a focus on Information Security and CIIP, from the Athens University of Economics and Business.
