Panel discussion on internet security standards on DNSSEC Day, 21 November 2019 in Zurich.
This year's global DNS hijacking campaigns made it clear how sensitive the Internet infrastructure is. In Switzerland, too, cyber attacks on companies, critical infrastructures and individuals are constantly on the increase. And yet Switzerland is one of the worst countries in Europe when it comes to adapting Internet security standards. For example, only 5% of domain names in Switzerland are DNSSEC-signed, compared to the Netherlands with 54%. This is astonishing, as the technical implementation has become fairly straightforward.
