Webinar on Cybersecurity

According to The World Economic Forum (WEF) Cybercrime is one of the greatest threats facing businesses today. By 2021, the global cost of cybersecurity is expected to reach USD 6 trillion, which is double the total for 2015. Beyond the direct costs of a breach, companies and organizations also risk important reputations damage. 

Why Switzerland?

- Plentiful Talent. The country hosts a high concentration of globally recognized research institutes in computer science, such as the Federal Institutes of Technology EPFL and ETH. Switzerland also leads in extensive knowhow in the field of cryptography. 

- Unrivaled Trust in Data Security Legislation. In Switzerland – well known for its neutrality and political stability – customers can count on the highest standards for data protection and confidentiality. There are significant legal hurdles in place should the Swiss – or any – government want to access the data of companies or private individuals. Unlike the U.S. a legal ruling is required before government authorities can access such data. According to the new Data Protection Act, all data is protected including digital data. 

- Optimal Infrastructure. Companies and individuals can rely on an effective and reliable infrastructure, well protected against external threats such as physical risks. For instance, Switzerland holds first place in a worldwide comparison of power supply quality.
