Federal Office for Information Security (BSI)


BSI as the Federal Cyber Security Authority shapes information security in digitization through prevention, detection and reaction for government, business and society.

For over a decade now, information technology has been changing our lives at a rapid rate: the Internet and mobile telecommunication have become the foundation for new forms of communication, commerce, and entertainment. Not only private industry has successfully made use of the new technical capabilities: public administrations now use modern IT to optimise their processes and to be able to offer citizens improved services. The term “e-Government” covers numerous online activities and may make many trips to public offices unnecessary in the future.
