President Miloš Zeman on Wednesday signed into law a bill on cyber security, a spokesman for the president said. The legislation, put forward by the National Security Authority, introduces rules for cooperation between the public and private sectors in preventing IT attacks. The act establishes a coordination centre to allow fast response to attacks by communications providers; it requires providers to report security incidents to the National Security Authority, and gives the agency the authority to declare nation-wide state of cyber emergency. The legislation will enter into force in January 2015.
