The German country report by Sebastian Cymutta outlines the division of cybersecurity roles and responsibilities between agencies in Germany, describes their mandate, tasks, and competences as well as coordination between them. The report offers an introduction to the broader digital ecosystem of the country and outlines national cybersecurity strategy objectives providing the context for the organisational approach.
