The Internal Security Agency ABW performs a number of important roles within the Polish government. As threats are rising and the number of critical systems is growing the Internal Security Agency is taking numerous preventive, verification and educational measures. In order to carry out its tasks effectively ABW is collaborating with suppliers of software used by government agencies and private entities that manage the government's critical infrastructure. The collaboration is both long term as well as ad-hoc and it includes consulting, workshops, training, compiling documentation and also awareness building campaigns. The benefits are higher security of the government's critical systems, higher level of knowledge and preparedness of major systems' administrators, and faster responding to arising threats to software and data.
