Das Faszinierende am brillanten Referat war, dass Stefan Frei uns die Komlexität der Cyber-Welt auf eine Art vermitteln konnte, dass uns Laien plötzlich die berühmten Schuppen von den Augen fielen und wir Einblick in ein schier unermessliches Universum erhielten. Mit unzähligen, treffenden Beispielen aus unserem Alltag schlug er Brücken und führte uns über diese in seine Welt. Ein reicher, aussergewöhnlicher Abend mit einem begeisterndem Stefan Frei!

I had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Stefan Frei – a respected authority on cyber security – talk at an event in Zurich and it really got me thinking about how fragile companies are and how exposed our personal data is. Dr. Frei underlines the development of technology and reminds us to think critically about the devices we use. Whereas we have little time to adapt or learn about new technologies, criminals can dedicate many resources in figuring out their vulnerabilities.
