Switzerland is lagging behind in Cyber-attacks, the reality for years

The case has been causing a stir and pushing politicians and security experts, also in Switzerland. Stolen, in the Darknet collected, partly chopped and wide published the private data of hundreds of politicians and celebrities from Germany. In Germany, the Handynumern of Chancellor Angela Merkel and SPD politician Martin Schulz has been published. Private photos, Videos, and Chats from accounts of Social media, and in Germany, kept secret addresses of politicians, is more serious.

security entrepreneur Markus Mock, with a view to Switzerland, to Worry, and asks, what happened in this country, should happen to be a comparable case. Mock, an Ex-COP with his service and consulting company Coprin, among other things, also in the cyber security area, thanks to a special software very quickly to the spectacular appearing in Germany's attention. The cyber experts are assured immediately all data published.

Malicious theft

The large set of data allows certain conclusions to be drawn on the approach of the perpetrators, and shows, Mock the official Switzerland lags behind with your safety measures in the cyber area "for years, the reality behind". Worn together, sometimes chopped, and then hand-list masses in Germany were transferred, apparently, to contacts, Chats, and private messages, Mails and files.

all content from a private Social were Tapped, therefore Media accounts. Who has done this and how exactly was taken is unknown. It is clear, however, with the large, possibly state-controlled cyber-attack, as first reports in the media, has not to do it. Because a targeted attack on a system relevant to the database or more Central databases, it does not seem.

Harmful to the width of the data Theft in Germany is to be expected anyway, because the objective is to discredit people, and because accounts, and cell phone, changed numbers, and possibly even places of residence must be changed when Exposed with interference or even attacks.

With Mock the Zurich EVP-national Council of Nik Gugger share the view that Switzerland suffers in the area of Cyber- crime of the lack of coordination and lack of leadership by the Federal government. Gugger's analysis is clear. In a Motion last winter session, he writes that Switzerland had no national leadership platform, which is in the location of the various resources from the individual Departments together with the cantonal and local groups of experts to bring in a targeted and coordinated.

"Especially in the context of complex Cyber-attacks, the time factor is a crucial Element to limit the Damage." Here, the state had to reduce the federalist and bureaucratic obstacles with appropriate inter-cantonal measures. "The incident in Germany shows the relevance of my Proposal," says Gugger.

44 ratskolleg indoor and fellow councillors from all political groups have signed on, including the President of the security-political Commission, Werner Salzmann (SVP). Instructs the Federal government, "to take immediately the creation of a Department-cross-the Cyber competence centre is intended to be". New for Switzerland, the term "first aid" in this context is, according to the Gugger in his Motion also calls. By cyber criminals, affected organizations and individuals immediate access to receive "professional and government-co-ordinated only help to maintain economic or personal damage."

"Know-how-Transfer does not take place"

under pressure from the Parliament, the Federal Council was asked last summer, although only just , to create a cyber center of excellence. However, the Federal Council, the refused, contented himself finally with a "Mister Cyber" or a "Miss Cyber", which will be located in the Department of Finance. Gugger, considers this as a goal. With a cyber person responsible in the nancial Department and a Cyber-school for recruits, it was not a matter for the Federal government. Was, rather, requires the establishment of a competence centre where the staff are used to thinking in the categories of attack and defence; in the Verteidigungsdepartememt.

security entrepreneur Markus Mock, maintains, meanwhile, that in Switzerland there is appropriate analysis, and defensive measures for significant attacks in the cyber area are only conditionally available, and the necessary Transfer of Know-how between public authorities and Private not. On the Federal level, a Cyber-Intelligence capacity were missing. This was in the everyday dependencies of other States, as well as risks for residents and businesses. Cyber Intelligence – the gathering of information is meant, among other things, the Darknet and the evaluation of resulting risks for individuals and organisations.

For Gugger is not clear that the previous efforts of the Federal government to meet. This is also the reactions of the Canton police forces on Display, the concern in the area of Cyber. The police officers nothing else to stay in today's environment, is usually left to put as the Display or to explain to them that one could make at the Moment, unfortunately, nothing.
