Secure websites for a safer Internet

The best websites attract lots of visitors – some of whom they could well do without. Internet criminals are increasingly exploiting third-party websites to spread malware such as viruses and Trojans or to gain access to protected data including login details and passwords.

Websites infected by malware cause immense damage online. Making the Internet safe in Switzerland and Liechtenstein is one of SWITCH’s core tasks, hence the decision to launch this Safer Internet website with information about preventing the misuse of domain names. The site explains why websites are being targeted more and more frequently, the threats that exist and how you can protect your own website and your visitors.

 If you would like to know more about security for computers and mobile devices, please take a look at the Swiss Internet Security Alliance (SISA) website.
