Security: Nothing but the Best

As operator of the Swiss stock exchange and the national infrastructure for interbank payments, SIX accepts nothing less than the highest security standards. Our Security Operations Center (SOC) operates around the clock, 365 days a year, assessing attacks swiftly, intelligently and precisely.

We offer the same stringent security standards to our clients, delivered by the same SOC. Small and medium-sized enterprises in the financial sector gain access to IT security services of a caliber usually available only at the biggest companies – and they can trust it, because we do.

Join the SIX Cyber Security Hub

The Swiss financial center has always been known for security and stability. Today, the threats may be different, but our commitment to security is unchanged.

The SIX Cyber Security Hub provides banks and insurance companies with reliable, relevant information on current risks and dangerous developments in the cybersecurity space. At heart, effective protection against cyberattacks depends on collaboration and the SIX Cyber Security Hub is built on the core elements of sharing information and experiences, and coordinated measures in the event of attacks.

By working together, organizations are less vulnerable to cyber risks: all Swiss banks and insurance companies regulated by FINMA are invited.
