As the industrial and logistics sector is embracing digital transformation, it is faced by a complex and ever-growing threat situation. Organizational complexities, the use of vulnerable third-party systems as well as production facilities that are not designed to be resilient against cyberattacks provide cybercriminals with opportunities to exploit vulnerabilities. Theft of intellectual property and a disruption in the production are the greatest cyber risks for the sector. Several studies show that companies in Switzerland still underestimate the menace of a cyberattack. SWITCH helps its customers to cope with the increasing challenges in the prevention of and response to attacks.
