To ensure a high level of cybersecurity, the legislator, both at the level of the European Union and within individual states of the Visegrad Group, has introduced certain solutions to adequately protect information systems, imposing an obligation to take measures to secure these systems against unauthorised interference. Incidents can significantly reduce the performance of information systems due to their vulnerabilities. Therefore, any duties connected with countering incidents which may compromise cybersecurity must be adequate to the importance of tasks performed using these systems.
Ensuring and maintaining a high level of security in cyberspace requires individual countries to set fundamental objectives in this field. These objectives are outlined in national cybersecurity strategies. The EU legislator makes it clear that these strategies should not only address the priorities for cybersecurity activities or identify risk management issues and actors, along with their competencies in the domain of cybersecurity, but also define response and recovery measures, the scope of cooperation between public and private sectors, as well as the guidelines for information, training and educational programmes, or recommendations for scientific research projects.
