Cyber Security Alliance is...

A team of mavens & benevolents

The Cyber Security Alliance - formerly known as the Application Security Forum - is a swiss initiative aiming at increasing awareness around Cyber Security. We organize a yearly conference and have created a community.

The project originated with some fools and many friends, all convinced that cybersecurity deserved a greater exposure and that switzerland had an important role to take.

A yearly conference

The conference is not only an opportunity to listen to great speakers but also to expand your network because most of the attendees are also experts in their field.

An incredible community

The "AppSec" community has been expanding over the years. This community is the pillar of the Alliance and showed the love and support over these years spreading the message and sharing experiences. 

Joining our conferences is a unique opportunity to meet these mavens.


We cover most of the hot subjects in Cyber Security matters from application security, to cryptography, threats intelligence, big data, network security, ethical hacking, privacy, critical infrastructures, risk management, cyber-criminality, identity... unveiling challenges facing companies and professionals and opening up debate.

Side events

We offer to our attendees the possibility to extend their experience, participating to side events, namely Capture the Flag (CTF), Rump Session, Startup presentations or contests, which allow them to enlarge their perspective and bring in new ideas and experience.

Networking & Fondue

Our now well-known diner at the chalet and Fondue are great events for those of you coming to Switzerland for a few days, in order to get the best out of networking. This is also an opportunity for the locals to discuss casually and grow your network.


We offer a couple of trainings covering various subjects and levels for professionals to deepen their knowledge or discover new methodologies, for student to test and encourage their motivations.
