Protection from cyber risks is ensured

Protection from dangers in cyberspace is a collective task for the Confederation, the cantons, businesses and society. The structures and processes for effective protection of the information and communications infrastructures which are critical for businesses, the population and the government are established in the respective areas of competency. The Confederation is increasing Switzerland's cybersecurity in cooperation with the cantons, the universities and the private sector, as well as at the international level. In this context it is essential that not only ex-post measures, but also ex-ante measures are envisaged, for example data security checks on components before they are deployed.
