National Cyber Security Organisation in Poland

Report by the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence provides a comprehensive overview of the current cyber security landscape and its ongoing formation in Poland. It introduces a dynamic system that is still evolving as a result of both internal strategies and EU regulations.

Poland is dynamically developing its economy, institutions, and regulation in response to the rising importance of cybersecurity and cyber-related issues. This development is driven partially by internal processes, and partially by the regulations introduced by the European Union, specifically The Network Information Security (NIS) Directive and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). There is an ongoing process of allocating responsibilities across different ministries and departments, with the Polish cybersecurity system emerging as a result of that process. Poland is advancing on the learning curve in adjusting its management, strategy and legislation to the new realities. The current study aims to reflect the status quo of the cybersecurity system in Poland and provide a roadmap to understand the process of its formation.

However, the current outline as provided in the new study and, as authors believe, could be a helpful material for understanding cybersecurity landscape in Poland, as well as dynamics of its formation.
