In-house know-how has always been the decisive competitive advantage. Today, data is also one of the most important assets of Swiss companies. Both must be protected. The high value of these assets is the motivation for business espionage, hacker attacks, and the constant threat of ransomware. Knowhow leakage can pose a serious threat to a company’s success. Handling data with confidentiality and integrity and protecting know-how must be a top priority.
