Reporting and Analysis Centre for Information Assurance MELANI

The Reporting and Analysis Centre for Information Assurance (MELANI) has been commissioned by the Federal Council to protect critical infrastructure in Switzerland. MELANI was set up for the early detection and resolution of problems in the information and communication infrastructure.

MELANI has been in operation since 1 October 2004 and functions as a cooperation model between the Federal Department of Finance (FDF), represented by the Federal IT Steering Unit (FITSU), and the Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport (DDPS), represented by the Federal Intelligence Service (FIS).

With the entry into force of the Ordinance on Protecting against Cyber-Risks in the Federal Administration on 1 July 2020, MELANI, previously part of the FITSU, and the national Computer Emergency Response Team (GovCERT) have become part of the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).
