Federal Office for Information Security (BSI)

Common situational pictures

The dimension of cyber attacks in Germany and France continues to increase, which keeps the threat situation at a high level in both countries. While the number and quality of cyber security intensify, the attacks also often reach cross-border impact. To gain a more qualified assessment of the current threat scenario several steps are needed. Those are joint analysis, comparable rating, trustworthy exchange of threat information and related evaluation of results.

Therefore, the two national federal agencies, the French ANSSI and the German BSI, expand their longtime cooperation. Together they will publish a common bilateral threat situation report on a regular basis.

Each published bilateral report will address a certain IT Security topic and compares its affects on each country’s threat situation. The first issue focuses on the threat of Ransomware.
