Council Directive 2008/114/EC

Critical Infrastructure Warning Information Network (CIWIN) is a pillar of the European Programme for Critical Infrastructure Protection (EPCIP) that seeks to improve the protection of critical infrastructure in Europe - across all EU States and in all relevant sectors of economic activity. [1]

CIWIN [2], a protected public internet based information and communication system, offers recognised members of the EU’s critical infrastructure protection community the opportunity to exchange and discuss CIP-related information, studies and good practices across multiple sectors.
