MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The 2017 BND budget for the purpose is projected to be 808 million euros (about $909 million), the news magazine said on Wednesday citing secret budget documents.

The twelve percent increase over the current year comes amid BND plans to boost its response to the widespread use of messenger services such as WhatsApp, Der Spiegel explained.

The services encrypt the messages of its users making it difficult for intelligence services to capture the content. BND is planning to overcome this difficulty, which is necessary amid the rise of cybersecurity and terrorism threats.
