The directive on security of network and information systems (NIS directive) is one of the latest steps that the EU has taken in order to strengthen security of its systems. The directive describes specific steps that each member state should follow. Greece that has recently published its cyber security strategy is moving towards the implementation of the NIS directive. The road ahead is long and a cooperation in both technical and strategic level is needed. This article describes the roadmap of the implementation of the NIS directive in Greece, the milestones, the problems and possible solutions.
