NSA Prism Leak Forces Countries to Step up Cyber Security

The stunning leak by National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden has forced many countries to beef up their cyber security.

Germany is considering a €100m (£84.86m) revamp plan for its intelligence agency BND that includes strengthening its cyber wing, according to Der Spiegel.

The Federal Intelligence Service is likely to expand its internet surveillance to monitor communications both within and outside the country.

The agency intends to recruit 100 new cyber experts while at the same time increasing its server capacities to fortify its cyber defence.
