Cyber Security in Switzerland
Finding the balance between hype and complacency
While the majority of internationally oriented companies assess the risk of cyber threats as high, domestically-oriented Swiss businesses generally rate these threats as low. Underestimating cyber security threats bears great risks.
The study shows that businesses need to improve their cyber intelligence and response capabilities. Companies also need to take a more strategic view and thus advance cyber security into a measured and managed discipline with proper executive oversight.
We are pleased to announce the release of our first study on “Cyber Security in Switzerland”. The study shows the fundamental importance of cyber security and the challenges that Swiss companies face in achieving it. To produce the study, Deloitte conducted interviews with 17 Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and Heads of Security Engineering or Operations from a cross section of industries. The purpose of these interviews was to understand how Swiss-based companies prepare for and respond to cyber threats.
