The fundamentals of the Federal Administration's IT security policy are drawn up by the FITSU.
Security fundamentals and directives
The Federal IT Ordinance and the Directive on IT Security in the Federal Administration govern the areas of competence and the procedure in implementing security requirements.
A key point is the nomination of an IT security official per department (ISOD) and per organisation unit (ISOO).
The FITSU lends support to the ISOD / ISOO in implementing the fundamentals and provides them with the necessary tools.
With MELANI, the Reporting and Analysis Centre for Information Assurance, the FITSU also offers useful information, checklists and tutorials to home computer and Internet users.
