Networking Lounge

A key element of the Swiss Cyber Storm is the information exchange among IT Security Enthusiasts. To give more room for after-talk-discussions, networking and even experimenting, we will introduce the Networking Lounge as a core part of the event for the first time.

The Networking Lounge is a central meeting place with free WIFI, computer accessories, equipped with black boards, movable walls, but also with couches, catering and a bar for refreshment. It aims to offer the perfect place to meet, discuss, experiment and socialize.

Instead of running the Swiss Cyber Storm Challenges on this day, the participants of the SCS Challenges 2017 will use the Networking Lounge as their training and playing ground, solving challenges and presenting small tasks. If you want to see them solving such challenges or want to get more information about the SCS challenges please let us know or just contact them yourself.

Our partners and sponsors are integrated in Networking Lounge. The Networking Lounge is the perfect place to approach these IT professionals with affiliation to industry, government and university.

The Networking Lounge is the place to stay in between the talks. It offers food and drinks. This is the place were we hope to meet on the party after the conference.
