National Cyber Security Council

The National Cyber Security Council (Cyber-SR) established in 2011 shapes cooperation in the field of cyber security within the federal government and between the state and business . The Cyber-SR acts as a strategic advisor to the federal government and brings high-ranking representatives from the federal, state and business sectors to a table. It thus offers a suitable format for promoting the strategic topics that are important for Germany in the area of cyber security across the board.
