Germany’s cybersecurity chief faces dismissal, reports say



The German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser may be fired because of contacts with Russian security personnel, German media reported on Sunday (9/10/10).

According to several outlets, Arne Schönbohm may have had such contacts through Germany’s Cyber Security Council of Germany.

Schoenbohm was the founder of the association. The association also includes a German subsidiary that is part of a Russian cybersecurity company founded by an ex-KGB agent.

Schoenbohm did not immediately respond to a message via social media.
