Independent. Transparent. Neutral.

For Switzerland's digital security.

Mission
ntc-nationales-testinstitut-cybersicherheit

The Swiss Competence Center

for independent testing of digital products and networked infrastructures.

The increasing digitization in administration, economy and society leads to a steadily growing risk through the use of untrustworthy digital products. Switzerland's security and independence are particularly at risk when insecure cyber-physical components are used in critical infrastructures. These include, in particular, the energy supply, the financial market, transport and healthcare, the security authorities and the army. An unacceptable risk is equally posed by insecure components in millions of products and digital services.

Independent security testing of digital components is therefore necessary. More than ever.

    of all IoT devices are vulnerable to cyberattacks. Often the consequences of a breach are severe.

    of all data traffic via IoT devices is unencrypted. This means personal and confidential data is exposed on the network.

    of all cyber attacks are due to non-updated software. Most of them could be avoided.

MISSION

We test cyber-physical components for their security and trustworthiness.

Sound, reliable and guaranteed independent.

The National Test Institute for Cyber Security NTC examines digital products and infrastructures that are not or not sufficiently tested by the private sector. We guarantee independent and in-depth testing and thus make a strategic contribution to maintaining Switzerland's security. The NTC examines proactively, even without a mandate and independently of concrete suspicions.

Out of conviction and responsibility for Switzerland.
