The first group NIS Cooperation meeting, NIS CG Work Stream 5 is a working group of competent authorities for digital services under the NIS Directive, i.e. online marketplaces, online search engines, and cloud services. The second, NIS CG Work Stream 10 is a group of competent authorities for digital infrastructure under the NIS Directive, i.e. the internet exchanges, the domain name system, and the top-level domains.
During this joint session, ENISA organised a small exercise to discuss cooperation and collaboration, cross-sector and cross-border, because both groups of experts are dealing with operators and enterprises with digital infrastructure across the EU, often operating across borders. Different breakout groups reported a number of challenges, mainly on the alignment and communication between the national authorities supervising operators and providers across the EU. ENISA will follow up on the results of this exercise in the coming months, together with the groups.
ENISA also organised two knowledge-building days for experts working at competent authorities under the NIS Directive. At the start of the week, a network expert from RIPE NCC gave a seminar on internet infrastructure. At the end of the week, ENISA offered a full day seminar on cloud security.
