1st Annual e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress Switzerland

28th September 2022 • Courtyard by Marriott Zurich North

Securing critical business sectors

Finance, healthcare, infrastructure and local government are all key targets: are they doing enough?

 

Taking cybersecurity seriously

Switzerland, arguably, came late to cybersecurity. It was only in 2019 that the Federal Council created the NCSC, which is part of the FDF General Secretariat. But more recently, the growing significance of cybersecurity to the country and core sectors such as finance has become clear. This year, the Federal Council is looking to reinforce and restructure the NCSC and turn it into a Federal Cybersecurity Office.


In addition, the government has just announced the establishment of a financial sector cybersecurity association, aimed at increasing the cyber resilience of the country’s financial sector. A new Swiss Financial Sector Cybersecurity Centre (Swiss FS-CSC) has been established in Zurich, which is open to all banks, insurance companies, and other entities that are registered in Switzerland and authorized by The Swiss Financial market supervisory authority (Finma).

The aim is to increase the cyber-resilience of the Swiss financial centre by facilitating the exchange of information between financial market players and improving cooperation on sector-wide preventive measures and systemic crisis management. The more than 80 founding members include associations, banks, and insurance companies.


The drivers of these changes are clear: Switzerland is increasingly a target for cyberattacks. In February Swissport, the world’s largest airport ground services and cargo handling company, was targeted by  ransomware.

In January, the Geneva-based International Committee of the Red Cross said its services had  been compromised by a hack. Swiss municipalities have also been hacked, including the towns of Montreux and Rolle. And a hacker recently gained access to thousands of commuter details in the Swiss Railways system. The NCSC’s latest report details thousands of incidents and focuses on supply chain attacks – the websites of the city and canton of St Gallen were unavailable for a prolonged period due to a DDoS attack on a hosting provider.


So how can vendors, governments and CISOs work together to build a better model for cybersecurity? In the US a new cybersecurity act for the healthcare sector has been proposed; resilience is the key buzzword in finance, and regulators want to force companies to put CISOs on their boards. In Europe, DORA and other regulatory updates are increasing mandatory security measures. And new technologies and cybersecurity architectures are being developed to try to keep up with the hackers, at the same time as the market moves to digital assets and the metaverse. But is this enough?


In her first speech since taking the helm of the UK NCSC, CEO Lindy Cameron said: “Cybersecurity
is still not taken as seriously as it should be…The pace of change is no excuse – in boardrooms,
digital literacy is as non-negotiable as financial or legal literacy.”

So what should Swiss organisations be doing to safeguard their operations, employees and
assets? Find out the latest thinking at the e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress Switzerland.

 

The 1st e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress Switzerland will look at how we all need a new kind of security. Join our real-life case studies and in-depth technical sessions from the security and privacy teams at some of the world’s most admired brands.

  • Is ransomware just going to keep getting worse?

    • Ransomware tests every part of your cybersecurity infrastructure from awareness to endpoint protection to patching to phishing defences.
    • Some attacks are sophisticated, but most rely on traditional methods and vectors.
    • So why is it so hard to beat them? Is AI or zero trust or something else the answer?
  • Can zero trust be done?

    • Zero Trust/ZTNA/SASE - they promise solutions to the key problems CISOs face today.
    • But how realistic are they? Do they take into account existing legacy technology, and the ways in which real companies actually do business day-to-day?
    • Can you explain how a real-world implementation works?
  • What does DORA mean for you?

    • The EU’s Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) is one of the most significant pieces of digital regulation anywhere in the world.
    • It recognizes the issue of third- and fourth-party exposures and the issue of CNI reliance on monopoly cloud providers. 
    • So, what do CISOs need to know?
  • Closing the cybersecurity skills gap

    • It is critical, as companies ramp up their digital business models, that they build security in from the beginning. But that is a big ask.
    • And even before the crisis, security teams found it hard to gain leverage over the business. 
    • How can cybersecurity teams help? Is this a CIO versus CISO battle?
  • From threat/security to risk/resilience

    • If we start with real business risks, then not only do we get real engagement from the business and the Board, we create a framework for prioritizing cybersecurity, resilience, incident response and BCP spend.
    • We avoid an endless race to build and rebuild solution stacks. 
    • What does resilience really look like?
  • Are we exaggerating cloud issues?

    • Migrating to the cloud is a priority. But, if not properly managed, cloud migrations result in extra complexity and risk.
    • So how can firms efficiently assess cloud readiness, plan and execute migrations and establish comprehensive cloud governance? 
    • Can you help companies transition smoothly and securely to the cloud?
