Switzerland proposes mandatory reporting of cyberattacks against critical infrastructure

The Swiss government has advanced a proposal for legislation that would impose mandatory notification of cyberattacks against critical infrastructures to the National Cybersecurity Center (NCSC). According to the government, ‘successful cyberattacks can have far-reaching consequences for the availability and security of the Swiss economy’; therefore a mandatory reporting scheme would provide a clearer picture of attacks and attackers and better inform cybersecurity measures.
