Cyberspace makes existing threats even more challenging. Modern security policy includes the virtual space: it looks ahead and thinks ahead. Within the framework of the Swiss National strategy for the protection of Switzerland against cyber risks, the DDPS is responsible for the nation’s cyber defence, every day, as well as in crises or conflicts. The DDPS can only fulfill this mission in close cooperation with its partners on the level of the Cantons, and of the Swiss Government. Cyber Security is a joint mission – and a security policy priority.
