Cyber security is a dynamic field with constant development. There are numerous players who deal with the opportunities and risks of this area and develop new products and solutions. We at the ISSS are following this development closely and would like to offer you a brief overview of some of the sites and articles worth reading.
There are several organisations and associations in Switzerland that are active in the field of security and can serve as a resource for our members:
Digital Switzerland: We are a fast moving association and foundation, relentless in our pursuit to make Switzerland a leading digital innovation hub.
