Member States representatives - one from each EU and EEA country - are part of the NLO network. A representative from the European Commission and a representative from the Council of the European Union are also part of the network.
ENISA has set up a network of National Liaison Officers (NLOs). Although not formally based on the ENISA Regulation, this network is of great value to ENISA, as the NLOs serve as ENISA’s important point of reference into the Member States on specific issues. ENISA also gains access to a network of national contacts through individual NLOs, reinforcing the activity of the Agency in the Member States.
The NLOs played an important role in developing ENISA NIS Good Practice Brokerage activities.
Based upon input from the NLOs, ENISA used to inform stakeholders of useful NIS contacts and activities in the Member States through compiling and updating Country Reports and the Who-is-Who Directory on NIS on its website.
