Security

Electronic communications plays an increasingly important role and is omnipresent in our modern society, directly through the use of the services they offer (telephony, internet, etc.) and indirectly through its interrelations with other sectors (energy, transport or finance for example).    

By delivering this work the “Network Security” department meets two large-scale missions: 1) monitoring network security and electronic communications services and 2) providing technical expertise and facilitating dialogue between public authorities such as emergency services, police, legal authorities, intelligence and security services, Directorate-General Crisis centre of the FPS Internal affairs on the one hand and the telecom sector on the other hand.

What does it mean in practical terms? With its “Network Security” Department, BIPT ensures that operators take the necessary security measures to guarantee the integrity and availability of their networks and services.  

The missions of the “Network Security” Department are not limited to that.  Indeed, the consequence of the constantly growing technological complexity is that IT and telecommunications will become more and more intertwined.  The added value of BIPT is its unique expertise in telecommunications within the federal bodies and its privileged relationship with telecom operators.  Within this framework, the “Network Security” department is also involved in key issues such as emergency services, legal interception or data retention.
