All attendees of Swiss Cyber Storm agree to be bound by the Swiss Cyber Storm Code of Conduct.
Swiss Cyber Storm aims to provide welcoming and professional environments so that diverse groups of people – regardless of age, race, gender identity or expression, background, disability, appearance, sexuality, walk of life, or religion – can get together to learn from and be inspired by each other about all things Security.
Swiss Cyber Storm is committed to a fruitful and positive environment and ask all our members, speakers, volunteers, attendees and guests to adopt these principles. In line with the Swiss Constitution we acknowledge that the well being of a community is measured by the well being and the comfort of the minorities within said community. We value your participation and appreciate your help in making this a great conference for everyone.
Respect yourself, and respect others. Be courteous to those around you. If someone indicates they don’t wish to be photographed, respect that wish. If someone indicates they would like to be left alone, let them be. Our event venues and online spaces may be shared with members of the public; please be considerate to all patrons of these locations.
We ask everyone to be aware that we will not tolerate intimidation, harassment, or any abusive, discriminatory or derogatory behavior by anyone at any event or online.
Safety Team Contacts
If at any time during the conference you feel unsafe or want to report questionable behavior, please contact a member of the safety team. Volunteers (Official T-Shirts) will be able to point them out to you.
