RUAG's IT systems are automated and are regularly scanned for malware. Owing to recent events (see the media release of 12 May 2016 *), RUAG has reviewed its processes and systems and is continuing to invest in strengthening its IT security. Over the next two years, RUAG is to spend a double-digit million sum in Swiss francs on the long-term security of its in-house systems.
The attack on the RUAG network has reinforced the Group's view that cyber-security will play an increasingly important role for its customers. Accordingly, RUAG plans to expand its Cyber Security business area more quickly and invest several million Swiss francs over the next few years. This will also create jobs both in Switzerland and abroad.
