Swiss organisation opposes proposed internet barriers

Published on December 19, 2016

As the Swiss government is considering introducing limits on certain gambling sites, the Swiss Association For Information, Communications And Organisation Technology publicly expressed it disagreement with such plans.

The Committee for Legal Affairs of the Swiss National Council is currently debating on a new legislation that would require ISPs to block foreign gambling sites operating in the Swiss territory. However, the Association expressed the worries that such steps could jeopardise online security and digital economy.

They also argue that the censorship on foreign websites planned by the national Council would be easily violated. As the modern users are aware on how to simply avoid internet limitations and locks, the legislation would encourage illegal behaviour.

In such way the Swiss government would have less data on clients’ activity, therefore cyber criminals would gain more opportunities for their actions.

The Swiss Association For Information, Communications And Organisation Technology has also warned the government regarding the possible financial loss from the revenues generated by authorised companies.
