Protect your authority

Cyberattacks can be dangerous for authorities if employees do not act correctly and/or IT systems are insufficiently protected. Therefore, both technical and organisational measures are needed to protect against cyberattacks. Some measures can be implemented by the communes themselves, or else they have to be discussed with external ICT service providers.

Don't forget, responsibility for cybersecurity always lies with the authority!

Helpful checklists are also available in this brochure:

Guidelines for communes (available in German and French)

Cooperation with IT service providers

Several points need to be considered if ICT security is outsourced to external service providers.
