TDL recommendations to NIS

Following the work undertaken by the Network and Information Security Public Private Platform (NIS Platform), in particular, the NIS Strategic Research Agenda (SRA), it became a priority for TDL to support this initiative by sharing knowledge and aligning priorities. As a result, TDL, who already had representatives involved and contributing to NIS, have concluded a short report highlighting some of the key (early) findings and recommendations, at both research and instruments level. Overall these proposed actions are aimed at complementing or supplementing the work done by the NIS Platform.

This report primarily targets the NIS Platform’s SRA, prepared by its WG3, and focusses on issues related to cybersecurity research and innovation in the context of the EU strategy for cybersecurity. However, the report is also relevant for other NIS WGs (i.e. WG1 on risk management and WG2 on information sharing) and the SRA community at large.
