The ICT-Security Portal Security for computers, smartphones and tablets

The number of attacks on computers and mobile devices is increasing continuously. The attacks are becoming more and more complex and professional. For this purpose, the ICT-Security Portal was launched in the beginning of 2013.

The portal is a strategic measure of the National ICT-Security-Strategy and the Austrian Cyber Security Strategy. It is an interministerial initiative in cooperation with the Austrian economy. The web portal is dedicated exclusively to ICT and cyber security. It is addressing first-time users as well as experts. The main target is the promotion and sustainable strengthening of the ICT safety culture in Austria.

The initiators of the ICT-Security Portal are the Federal Ministry of Finance, the Austrian Federal Chancellery and the A-SIT Secure Information Technology Center – Austria. At the moment there are 40 collaboration partners, which include federal ministries, the provincial governments (“Länder”), other authorities, universities, universities of applied sciences and research establishments as well as businesses, unincorporated associations and special interest groups.
