Fighting cybercrime with Suisse ePolice

In the digital age, we are confronted with numerous risks on a daily basis, where it is often difficult to keep track and act quickly. Our Mobility Solutions team developers once again had the opportunity to work on the Suisse ePolice project, the digital police post of the Swiss police forces. Since the end of March 2023, the "Report Cybercrime Offense" section of Suisse ePolice has been live, giving us the opportunity to report crimes in the digital space directly online as well.
