Switzerland needs Cybersecurity Specialists

Cybercrime is estimated to cost businesses worldwide up to $2 trillion by the end of 2019. Cyberattacks damage much more than just your IT network; they can also affect your brand reputation, your revenue and your future. Swiss companies tend to underestimate cyber threats. Consequently, we are experiencing an alarming shortage of Cybersecurity Specialists in the Swiss market.

53% of attacks
resulted in damages
of $500,000 or more

55% of companies
had to manage public scrutiny
due to a breach

58% of the companies
breached had to manage an outage
of more than 5 hours

It is not a matter of “if” but “when” your company will come under a cyberattack.
