Cyber. Security. Investment.

Cyber security is no longer a niche topic. In recent months, Swiss companies have regularly been the victims of attacks on the internet. What consequences does the head of the Armed Forces draw from this situation? What can we learn from foreign companies? How are Swiss politicians reacting?
