Cyber attacks on companies are unfortunately part of everyday life nowadays, and this applies across the globe. The consequences are severe: around a million login details for user accounts were stolen in seven significant data leaks across a range of industries and companies in Switzerland alone. Swisscom's Security Report 2017 is making this public for the first time. Also exclusive to the report is an overview of how seriously these data thefts affect individual Swiss industrial sectors as well as our media and public administration.
Also covered in the report:
While cyber threats are often technical in nature, effective countermeasures should also be sought outside the technical sphere. Knowledge is one of the most effective defensive measures - knowledge of interrelationships and possible countermeasures. With the Security Report, Swisscom hopes to share its knowledge with society, increase public awareness of the risk and make protective measures more widely known.
