This article is in danger of deletion due to the fact that it is primarily single-sourced, primary sourced, and so very narrow. It really belongs on another page about computer security policy in a section that lists policies in place for various governments (this one for Germany). However, that article does not currently exist in a good way (search for information security or computer security policy and you will find a handful of articles that should be merged somehow). If anyone can improve this article in the mean time, that would be great. I will slowly work on putting the information together into a nice, complete article on the broader topic. Germany's InfoSec policy is not worthy, in and of itself, to have an encyclopedia article! –Paul M. Nguyen (chat|blame) 01:01, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

I copyedited the article anyway; I still think the general concept should be included in a broader article on Information Security Policy. It involves human resources and management, the systems infrastructure (both hardware and software), and has a fairly solid, business-aware model for an agile security management program. However, this is not compliant with WP:NOTABLE, a frequently-cited reason for deletion of an article. I believe the policy could be summarized in two paragraphs and laid to rest in a better article. Drop your comments here or contact me directly (your post will most likely be transferred here for the sake of the integrity of the discussion). –Paul M.
