SIGS Kick Off IT Security Strategy 2019 and beyond: Challenges & Priorities

Reflections on the Challenges of Digitization for the Swiss Security Policy
Since the beginning of the 1980s, our society has experienced a rapid and radical revolution through the invasion of information and communication technologies (ICT), which we have irrevocably become dependent on. No one escapes this transformation and its consequences. What does this change mean for Switzerland’s security policy?

The presentation will propose a first approach on the essential elements of this equation and will explore beyond the classic but still dominant considerations of computer security. The shape of future conflicts for which our highly engineered society should prepare are also discussed. The cyber incidents known so far could only have been nice bites compared to what we might expect in the future.
