Wiz-Team supports delivery of Swiss Cyber Security Days

The Swiss Cyber Security Days (SCSD), bringing together Switzerland‘s leading expertise in cyber security in an international environment, kicked off today. The delivery of this high-profile, virtual event has been supported by Wiz-Team’s event management solution “Event-Works” for registration, ticketing, and payment.

The conference is streamed via a new innovative networking and business platform called “SCSD365”. Wiz-Team has created a specific, highly customised API, which allows for a high-speed, accurate, and secure access to important event information connecting Event-Works with the SCSD365 virtual platform.

“With data privacy and security being core elements of Wiz-Team’s solutions, it has been a fascinating experience to contribute to the delivery of this important event for a second time in a row”, says Wiz-Team COO Tim Goethals. He adds: “Last week we were back on the ground supporting the delivery of a physical international sport event in Poland, this week we are again 100% in the virtual space. That’s the new normal and our versatile event management solution allows us to adjust quickly to different situations and needs.” 

This year’s SCSD themes focus on global hacking and national sovereignty, with the second conference day devoted to SME security.  The line-up of top level speakers include Federal Councillor Ueli Maurer, André Kudelski, Chairman and CEO of the Kudelski Group and President of Innosuisse, and many more senior experts from organisations such as Interpol, the WEF, the Geneva Center for Security Policy, the CyberPeace Institute and the European Space Agency.

JOHANN

CEO

As the founder and CEO of Wiz-Team, Johann has been a part of this adventure long before the start of the organisation 10 years ago. This dynamic and fast-growing company was born out of gap in the market Johann and his colleagues experienced as event managers in the early 2000s.  With little tools available to effectively manage the demands and challenges of data management for complex events, they decided to build their own solution. 

Shortly thereafter Johann created Event-Works and later Wiz-Team with the vision to deliver world class digital solutions built by event professionals for event professionals. From Wiz-Team headquarters in his hometown Lausanne, he oversees a global network of developers and experts, who support the organisations mission to empower event professionals through smart, intuitive, and innovative digital solutions. 

Johann’s expertise in event data management is outstanding.  He has delivered innovative event management solutions to every Olympic Games edition since 2004 alongside a range of other international events. Having worked across many sectors, including sports federations, the medical congress industry, corporate companies, and government agencies, he has acquired a wide-ranging background and an exceptional experience in various types and sizes of events. Before he set up Wiz-Team, Johann specialised in web and database development, as well as project management in the luxury industry, and teaching.

Johann holds an MBA in international management and speaks English, French and some German. In his spare time, he enjoys scuba diving, discovering the world on a motorbike, gaming and exploring new technologies.
