The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications has drafted a new Act specifically for cyber activities (Cyber Security Act). The Act is intended to come into effect on 10 May 2018. Currently the Cyber Security Act is going through coordination by different ministries.
New Act to be implemented, details are not known yet. The Directive will be implemented by the Cyber Security Act (CSA).
The service providers are generally subject to Estonian law based on the principle of territorial applicability of the CSA
Special rules apply to reporting by providers of digital services. A report must be submitted to the competent authority or CSIRT of the relevant member state where (i) the digital services provider is established; (ii) the parent company is established in case of a group of undertakings or (iii), providers of digital services from third countries have appointed a representative in another EU member state. State supervision over such digital service providers will only be exercised (i) if the digital services provider is established in Estonia; (ii) where the parent company is established in Estonia in case of a group of undertakings or (iii) if providers of digital services from third countries have appointed a representative in Estonia.
