The Ukraine war shows that, in addition to Russian rocket attacks and artillery fire, cyber attacks also play an important role in armed conflicts. Parallel to the invasion, Russian hackers paralyzed the Ukrainian government’s website. British intelligence warned that Russia is increasingly looking for cyber targets.

Defense Minister Viola Amherd (59) therefore wants to expand the army’s cyber defense for billions. At the same time, cyber security is also to be strengthened at civilian level. In view of its growing importance, the Federal Council decided on Wednesday that the National Center for Cyber ​​Security (NCSC) should be upgraded to its own federal office.
