CIP Directorate

The Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Directorate (CIPD) operates within the portfolio of the Ministry for Home Affairs, Security, Reforms and Equality (MHSR) in Malta.  It is a Government organisation formally established in September 2014.  In addition to its principal CIP, the functions of the “Critical Information Infrastructure Protection (CIIP) Unit” and those of “CSIRTMalta” (the National Computer Security Incidence Response Team), have been incorporated within the functions of the CIPD.

At the National Level, the CIPD is entrusted with a coordinating role of all stakeholders involved in the management of Critical Infrastructures (CI), Critical Information Infrastructures (CII), all Public and Private CSIRT’s (Computer Security Incident Response Teams) within the scope of CER and NIS2 Directives currently being transposed into Maltese Law.

At the European and international level the CIPD acts as the CIP European contact point in Malta and reports and coordinate related issues within Malta, with other European Member States, with the European Commission.
