I didn't see it on ATS, so I (as your link to Germany
) wanted to share this information with you, of course translated
The federal government of Germany today passed a resolution on cyber-defense for their own IT security. Digital attacks on German authorities will
now be blocked centrally.
Federal Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière explained that a failure of the Internet would be critical for Germany. Therefore it's a need to ensure
that the Internet is available, free and secure. There was an average of every two seconds an attack on the Internet, and each week a successful
attempt to attack a German authority network digitally. Therefore there is now the new Center for Cyber-Defense, Federal Agency for Security of
computer science. Here, the authorities should cooperate more than before.
Moreover, there should also be a Cyber-Security council. In this, representatives of the Federal Government and the business community for advice on
IT security will work together. If the Cyber-Security Council deems it necessary, he can also ask scientists for advice. Above all, government and
industry will work together on issues of IT security in the future.
It seems the my government finally realized the necessity of IT security
