About the Institute

Who we are

The Swiss Cyber Institute (SCI), based in Zurich is a registered cyber security education provider by the State Secretariat for Education, Research, and Innovation SERI. Aiming to promote cyber resilience, the Institute offers comprehensive training programs, conferences, and networking opportunities to empower individuals and organizations. Supported by its industry-leading cybersecurity network, the Institute also hosts the annual Global Cyber Conference with the "Swiss CISO Awards", bringing together international cybersecurity leaders, industry professionals, and academics in Zurich. 

As companies increasingly rely on technology to manage their daily operations, the threat of cybercrime continues to grow. Without trained personnel, companies cannot prevent cyberattacks. The Swiss Cyber Institute is proud to be a hub that helps professionals and organizations learn and improve their skills to prevent cybercrime in Switzerland and around the world.
