Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki signed orders that extend the alert levels regarding the threat of terrorism and potential attacks in cyberspace until November 30, 2023.
This concerns the extension of the 3rd degree of CHARLIE-CRP, the 2nd degree of BRAVO throughout the country and the 2nd degree of BRAVO towards the Polish energy infrastructure located outside the borders of the Republic of Poland. First of all, they are a signal to the services to be ready for action. The following will be extended:
Third CRP alert level (3rd CHARLIE-CRP level) on the entire territory of the Republic of Poland – Order No. 364 of August 31, 2023;
second alert level (2nd BRAVO level) throughout the territory of the Republic of Poland – Order No. 363 of August 31, 2023;
second alert level (2nd BRAVO level) towards Polish energy infrastructure located outside the borders of the Republic of Poland – Order No. 365 of August 31, 2023.
CRP grades address threats in cyberspace. Charlie-CRP is the third of the four alert levels specified in the Anti-Terrorist Activities Act. It is introduced in the event of an event confirming the probable purpose of a terrorist attack in cyberspace or obtaining reliable information about a planned event. The BRAVO level (second on a four-point scale) is introduced in the event of an increased and foreseeable threat of a terrorist event.
In the event of a Charlie-CRP alert, the administration’s task is to review resources to be used in the event of a defense and implement business continuity plans in the event of an attack.
In the case of the second BRAVO alert level, the administration’s tasks include, among others: prohibiting unauthorized persons from entering kindergartens, schools and universities or closing buildings and rooms that are not regularly used. The citizen’s tasks are to remain vigilant, inform the services after observing suspicious events and follow instructions.
