Senate OKs cybersecurity bill

With 80 votes in favour, 3 against and 57 abstentions, the Senate on Wednesday approved a government-initiated bill to strengthen national cybersecurity.

Following the House’s approval a month ago, the text now becomes law.

Among the measures introduced is the tightening of penalties for cybercrimes and the obligation for administrations to report attacks within 24 hours and to have a cybersecurity officer.
