Welcome from the organizers

We are pleased to announce the upcoming CMC Cybersecurity Symposium in Lugano Switzerland, which for the third consecutive year will bring together international institutional and business representatives.

Building on our previous successful 2015 & 2016 cyber conferences that drew an international list of attendees from governments, academia and industry we are also cementing our role as one of Switzerland’s truly international Cybersecurity symposium’s.

Businesses and governments are acutely aware of the financial, reputational and disruptive effects of global cyber-attacks as they evolve in frequency and severity. Our goal is to assess, mitigate, and block cyberattacks, not only through expert insight on the scope and nature of an always evolving cyber threat, but to have those specialists offer viable solutions for the next generation cyberattacks.

Representatives from leading Swiss and International businesses will represent the private sector, whereas the governmental sector & the international organizations will be represented by past or current specialists.

We thank you in advance for your attention and look forward to receiving your confirmation of participation.
Yours sincerely,
Kim Hildebrant
CEO K.N.C. Consulting and Chairman of the Organising Committee

Dr. Morris Mottale
Professor of International Relations and Comparative Politics
Chairman of the Department of Political Science
Franklin University Switzerland
Academic Coordinator
