MELANI becomes the “National Center for Cybersecurity”.
The Confederation wants to strengthen its activities in the area of cyber risks. The Federal Council thus decided to create the National Center for Cybersecurity. To do this, it builds on the skills and services that already exist such as the Central Information Recording and Analysis (MELANI). As of July 1, 2020, MELANI will thus become part of the NCSC.
This new center is intended to protect the public and businesses against cyber risks and improve the security of Confederation systems. In particular, it is designed to operate as a national window for reporting incidents and cyber risk issues, and to operate a national computer emergency response team (GovCERT) as a specialized service, according to this web page.
