  • Government Decision No. 1035/2012. (21 February) on Hungary’s National Security Strategy
  • Government Decision No. 1139/2013 (21 March) on the National Cyber Security Strategy of Hungary)

Both documents were elaborated bearing in mind the international examples and the importance of international involvement as well as the trends and challenges, thus they provide a suitable strategic framework for domestic cooperation and coordination as well as for international cooperation (primarily within the framework of UN, NATO, EU, Council of Europe). These strategic documents dedicate an important role to the issue of cyber security, and they treat the action against cybercrime focusing on the tasks of guaranteeing secure online environment
