There are security gaps in video surveillance of army installations. There are also problems with data protection. (icon picture)

The Defense Department (VBS) admits the problems openly. Some of the video cameras that the Swiss army uses to monitor its buildings and facilities are inadequately protected against hacker attacks. They are also not state-of-the-art. Furthermore, data protection regulations are not observed. This is the conclusion of an internal investigation report commissioned by Federal Councilor Viola Amherd (60).

The cameras are installed, for example, at the entrances to military installations, weapon sites, logistics centers or army administration buildings. However, it is not even known how many such cameras exist. The internal audit of the DDPS states in a test report that there is no overall overview, reports Radio SRF.
