Cyber attacks hit the Swiss economy hard: one company every 11th second, average losses of CHF 6 million and the most serious intrusions costing well over CHF 100 million. Cyber resilience is no longer an optional extra, but essential for survival.

Is your cybersecurity strategy just lip service or the backbone of your business strategy?

Prof. Patrick Krauskopf: "For me? It's the skeleton that holds the corporate body together. It's inconceivable in 2024 to treat cybersecurity as a secondary consideration. It goes far beyond protection – it's a matter of trust, integrity, and ultimately existence."

Tobias Gurtner: "Absolutely, Patrick. I see our cybersecurity strategy as the compass that guides us through the stormy waters of the digital world. It is deeply rooted in every aspect of our company, from product development to customer communication. Without a solid cybersecurity strategy, everything else is irrelevant."

How involved are executives and board members in developing and implementing the cybersecurity strategy?

Prof. Patrick Krauskopf: "As the chairman of the board of several publicly traded companies, I place great importance on our cybersecurity strategy not only meeting the latest international standards but also being visionary. It is our duty to ensure that we are not just reacting to threats but staying a step ahead."

Tobias Gurtner: "We foster a culture of vigilance where cybersecurity is not seen as a task, but as a privilege. By training and raising awareness at all levels, we ensure that cybersecurity is embedded in our company's DNA."
