DDr. Gerald Quirchmayr, Faculty of Computer Science, Multimedia Information Systems Research Group, University of Vienna CERT Communication in the light of GDPR and the NIS Directive Abstract: Computer Emergency Response Teams are an essential component of the European cyber security landscape. With the introduction and passing into effect of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Network and Information Security (NIS) Directive a new legislative base has been established for protecting privacy and for defending critical information infrastructure components inside the European Union. Starting from research carried out in the Austrian KIRAS (www.kiras.at) security research projects CERT Komm I and II, the talk outlines the critical role of CERTs and their communication. The talk then discusses selected effects that may result from the introduction, respectively translation into national legislation, of GDPR and NIS.
