Security Interest Group Switzerland (SIGS)

Security Interest Group Switzerland (SIGS) – the platform where today’s professionals in information security will develop a new way of thinking to ensure success in protecting their respective organizations.

Meet and be inspired with professionals who face a similar set of challenges as you to share strategies for mitigating the most current information security threats.

SIGS is an open community without any obligations but with the goal of bringing together professionals to share know how as well as experiences, and therefore to profit from each other.

Our Mission

Provide platforms to gain real added value

Priority of our platforms is to provide real added value and personal benefit. In an ongoing process we try to educate vendors not to do sales presentations, but find professional speakers who provide the audience with industry know how and best practices.

Bring new technology faster to Switzerland

To ensure fast adoption of new technologies/vendors to the Swiss market, platforms like the SIGS Technology Conference (day event) offer special sponsor packages for emerging vendors.

Boost cooperation’s and collaborations with other security institutions

(ISC)2 and ENISA are event partners at the SIGS Technology Conference. For 2016 further cooperation’s with FS-ISAC, ISF and Swiss Cyber Storm are currently in process. In the future we`d like to concentrate their know how in one united platform.

Boost cooperation’s and collaborations with other countries

We will bring participants from other countries to events in Switzerland to expand the knowledge transfer over boarders.

Improve the information flow from technology areas like Silicon Valley and Israel etc.

Build special interest groups

We build special interest groups for topics like Security Awareness, Security Operation Center, SCADA etc. to enable a closer and better collaboration among professionals (even across boarders)

Building buying associations

We support partnerships of different companies to build buying associations. By this the risk to work with startups is minimized. Also it opens up new possibilities for small enterprises.

Profit from others success

by bringing together companies with the same interest, new ideas can arise

Why we are different?

  • A platform without sales people as participants (besides the sponsors we need). You should be able to speak as freely as possible!
  • We always try to offer presentations from end customer side with real best practice experience content
  • A chance to meet monthly in person in Zurich, Basel, Bern and Geneva to find inspiration, new ideas and build trust to other peers
  • Regular seminars and expert workshops to build your skills and keep you abreast of current threats and defences (with money-back guarantee if you are not happy!).

So give us a chance and take part at one of the platforms. You can find all the planned get-togethers here
