Strategy NCS

National strategy for the protection of Switzerland against cyber-risks (NCS) for the period 2018 to 2022

Since spring 2019, following the adoption of the NCS for 2018 to 2022, the decisions on the organisational structure of the Confederation and the approval of the implementation plan, all the elements of the overall concept for the protection of Switzerland against cyber-risks have been in place. The NCS formulates the strategic goals for protection against cyber-risks across all areas (public security, defence and criminal prosecution); the organisational structure of the Confederation defines the general division of responsibilities and sets out how the Confederation plans to cooperate with the cantons, businesses and universities; finally, the NCS implementation plan defines the responsibilities of the individual units involved.

Information on the NCS can be found on the website of the Federal IT Steering Unit under:
