In a world which is increasingly relying on digital information, the role of cybersecurity is not only essential for leading tech companies working in IoT and cloud services – but also relevant to any companies that host a website and an internet network. In this regard, business organizations can reap significant advantages by including cybersecurity as a key asset in their strategy. To allow our peers to have a better understanding of what the challenges are, swissnex China and HEC Lausanne are delighted to organize a conference on cybersecurity on September 19th.

It is our great pleasure to welcome professor Solange Ghernaouti in China to share her know-how as an expert in this field. At this conference, she will give some insights and clarify the implications of cybersecurity inside companies.
