Federal Councillor Viola Amherd
Head of the Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport DDPS
Cyberspace makes existing threats even more challenging. Modern security policy includes the virtual space: it looks ahead and thinks ahead. Within the framework of the Swiss National strategy for the protection of Switzerland against cyber risks, the DDPS is responsible for the nation’s cyber defence, every day, as well as in crises or conflicts. The DDPS can only fulfill this mission in close cooperation with its partners on the level of the Cantons, and of the Swiss Government. Cyber Security is a joint mission – and a security policy priority.
All year round platform for cybersecurity
Covid-19 boosted the idea to make the shift towards a virtual event format. The goal is to keep the engagement of the cybersecurity community and take the chance to reach a new qualified audience by making the event virtual. „SCSD365“ is a cross-platform (web and native mobile app) for conferences and exhibitions that increase interactions between attendees and exhibitors and helps measure and capture exhibitor ROI all year round. It enables an impressive symbiosis of classic conferences and live communication with a variety of digital information and interaction possibilities and digital developments.
