The NASK CSIRT (Computer Security Incident Response Team) operates in accordance with the Act on the national security system, which implements into the Polish legal system the EU Directive on the security of network and information systems (NIS Directive). The act appoints three institutions to serve as response teams – the Internal Security Agency (GOV CSIRT), NASK – National Research Institute (NASK CSIRT) and the Ministry of National Defence (MON CSIRT), which work with one another and with other organs responsible for cybersecurity. Together, they constitute a coherent and complete national risk management system, combating cybersecurity threats, both sector-specific and cross-border, as well as coordinating the handling of all reported incidents. The institutions making up the national cybersecurity system form a cohesive whole which renders it possible to take a wide range of effective actions to counteract threats and successfully respond to hazards.
