Digital Security Authority
The DSA is a new independent governmental agency under the supervision of the Commissioner of Communications. It is responsible for the implementation of the European NIS (Network and Information Security) Directive, with a strong focus on upgrading and maintaining high levels of cybersecurity for all of the operators of essential services and critical information infrastructures in our country, including operators in the energy, water, transport, health, banking, financial market infrastructure, and digital infrastructure sectors. Digital service providers that are established in Cyprus are also covered – examples include online marketplaces, online search engines and cloud computing services. The establishment of the Digital Security Authority, which incorporates the National CSIRT, is crucial to significantly raising the cybersecurity posture and capabilities of Cyprus, securing our society and boosting our international competitiveness, helping to contribute to the development of our economy in the process.
