At the Swiss universities and universities of applied sciences, the future visions, ideas, and products take root and grow. The easy collaboration with peers and unhindered, secure connectivity to the whole world is key to their success.
Because SWITCH believes that researchers and students need to be connected to the world, SWITCH-CERT was created for the Swiss universities immediately after the introduction of the Internet in Switzerland. Since then, SWITCH-CERT protects the academic members and their IT infrastructure.
Together with its academic partners' IT security staff and international partners around the world, SWITCH-CERT works diligently to keep the Swiss academia safe and criminals out.
SWITCH-CERT's security experts analyse the relevant information to detect and mitigate cyber threats against your academic network. With the help of our national and international partner network, we provide the necessary head start when new threats arise.
To create better synergies, SWITCH formed the Security Working Group as a collaboration platform for all security experts working in the Swiss academic community to exchange information, know-how, experience and foster collaboration.
