Dear Members,

as announced during our General Assembly, our aim is to provide a monthly opportunity for interesting talks on Cybersecurity, Compliance, and Awareness issues.

We are happy to invite you to our next online event which will take place online on Thursday 10th of September, 17.30-19:30 through WebEx.  


17:30 - 18:30. Patrick Toenz, CEO, t2b AG

S1: CISO’s dream: how to encrypt any data easily, selectively & consistently

Summary: Every company is using or wants to use Office365, G Suite, AWS, Azure etc.  But moving data to the cloud has a risk and Patrick will show how you can easily mitigate that with an encryption gateway. An encryption gateway allows even Swiss government units to put personal data on the public cloud – as the data is encrypted at rest and in transit. With the keys and algorithms of your choice. Of course, the proposed approach also works for Intranet applications. A dream?

Bio: Patrick Toenz is working in IT for 35 years, in 2001 he created t2b - specialised on pragmatic Enterprise, Integration, Data & Security Architecture. t2b’s headquarter is in in Basel and they have an office in Bern since 2014. With his team of senior architects, Patrick is supporting Swiss Top500 Companies & Government units in those areas.


18:30-19:30: Raoul ("Nobody") Chiesa, ICT Security Senior Expert, Visionary Entrepreneur, Key Note Speaker, Cybersecurity Adviser and CyberGlobetrotter

S2: “The CISO's dilemma”

Summary: insight about having a strategy vs having a technology, with the usual plethora of anecdotes and examples.

Bio:  Raoul Chiesa starts his web adventure at the age of twelve. He first sneaked into military and government institutions and banks. Internationally famous, he affirms his role and shows his skills by sneaking into Banca d’Italia in 1995. Shortly after, SCO (Central Operative Section of the Italian Police), on a FBI hint, arrests him with thirteen different charges. After persuading the enquirers of his good faith, he spends four months in house detention. Finally, this event forced him out of the dark web and start working on cybersecurity. He defines himself as an “ethical hacker” and becomes the European leader in cybersecurity helping several governments facing web-related issues.  


Please do not forget to register for the event so that we keep track of the participants and submit the corresponding 2 CPEs to (ISC)2 afterwards.

We will share the WebEx link with those registered through email before the event.

Looking forward to seeing you on the 10th of September
Best regards,
The (ISC)2 Chapter Switzerland Board
