About The Forum


Swiss Cyber Forum is a unique community between individuals and organizations from the academic world, the public authorities and the private sector to join forces in the fight against cybercrime, established in Zurich in 2019.

We connect and bring together individuals and organisations through organising workshops, educational trainings, and global conferences and other industry events and provide a digital platform for the wider community at the global level.

"Because cyber risks affect many different actors, it is very important to organise cooperation among the various bodies, to allocate responsibilities, and to develop the foundations."
