Dataspace Switzerland - How much security is there in the Swiss dataspace?

Wednesday 22.06.2022, hybrid - online as well as in Umweltarena Spreitenbach, 15:00 - 17:00

More and more data is moving to the cloud - but how secure is it? Ransomware attacks and other hacks fill the media almost daily. But even when the right technology is used correctly, cyber criminals still find ways into the company: Via social engineering and phishing, employees are manipulated and data is stolen.

Due to the general move to the cloud, what was long considered a problem for highly technical companies has become an everyday problem for blue-light organizations, construction material suppliers or painting companies. Is the move into digitization synonymous with an unmanageable security risk for Swiss SMEs? Will business freedom ultimately be lost if digital sovereignty falls by the wayside?

These are the questions we want to explore at the 3rd Dataspace Switzerland event. First, the current threat situation will be addressed, then solutions will be presented at various levels - compliance, technical and practical. After the presentations we want to discuss these topics together and network.

We would like to thank our partners aspectra, Flow Swiss, cloudscale.chHostpoint, Ops One und stepping stone.
