The security of citizens, the state and companies in the virtual space is our concern. We provide information about risks and implement measures to increase digital security together with the public sector.

Security in the digital space

The rapid increase in activities in the digital space is leading to new risks for citizens, the state and companies. We raise awareness of these risks by providing target-group-specific information and launch project initiatives to increase security. In this way, we want to ensure the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) to promote innovation, economic and social prosperity.

The Cybersecurity Committee

The Committee is the specialised body of digitalswitzerland for issues related to the detection and prevention of cyber risks. The committee is made up of cybersecurity experts from the administration, associations, business and science. The goal is to contribute to a cyber-resilient Switzerland.

Cybersecurity Quick Check for SME

This online questionnaire enables companies to determine where they stand and shows whether they are implementing the most important technical, organizational and employee-related measures for a minimum level of cybersecurity protection.

The focus is not on a comprehensive and complete analysis. Rather, SMEs – especially those with little knowledge of IT and digital security – can quickly and easily find out whether their technical, organizational and employee-related measures provide sufficient protection against cyber risks.

Representative surveys on digital security

Within the framework of representative surveys on digital security, we create a knowledge base to identify challenges related to digital security in business and society. This creates the basis for informing citizens and companies about the risks in the digital space and for taking targeted measures to protect against cyber risks.

White Paper Supply Chain Security

In Switzerland, digital products from various national and international suppliers are used in all sectors, from industry to the police and the armed forces. The white paper “Supply Chain Security” lays bare alarming weak points in the digital supply chain. Independent and credible testing that adequately ensures the integrity of purchased cyber products is necessary in order to reveal hidden vulnerabilities, backdoors and implanted malfunctions.

GCA Cybersecurity Toolkit for Small Business

The GCA Cybersecurity Toolkit for Small Business provides companies with free and effective tools, including instructions for safe use of the Internet and complements the Cybersecurity quick check for SME with practical solutions.
