Cyber Security Services: Maximum Security

SIX offers clients in the financial industry Cyber Security services based on its own Security Operations Center (SOC). As operator of the stock exchange and the infrastructure for interbank payments, SIX relies on maximum security. Therefore, the SOC has to satisfy the highest demands – SIX uses it itself too.

The offering by SIX gives small and medium-sized enterprises from the financial sector access to a highly professional security solution that only big firms can afford to develop.

The SOC at SIX works around the clock (24x7x365) and enables attacks to be assessed in a more intelligent, swift and precise manner.

From the Financial Sector for the Financial Sector

SIX seeks to ensure the best possible protection for both itself and the system-critical Swiss banking infrastructure by identifying relevant security incidents at an early stage. The SIX claim is to provide finance-driven cyber security services.
