Wiesbaden (DTS News Agency) – The state of Hesse is clearly abandoning its position of blockade on the expansion of the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) into a central and national authority for cybersecurity. “I do not rule out changing the basic law from the beginning,” Hesse State Interior Minister Roman Busiek told the specialized Tagesspiegel background service. The ban on thinking is wrong.

However, Busiek initially wants to work with the states and the Federal Ministry of the Interior on a viable and successful concept for greater cybersecurity. The Christian Democratic Union politician said: “I do not want to raise the issue of changing the basic law at the beginning.”

Transforming the BSI into a central office is the core project of Federal Interior Minister Nancy Weisser (SPD) when it comes to cybersecurity policy. This requires changing the basic law. A Social Democratic Party politician also needs a two-thirds majority in the Federal Council. The union-led federal states have blocked this for months because it would hand over powers to the federal government.
