Switzerland wanted to know the status of its cybersecurity capacity: its strengths and weaknesses.  At the invite of the Foreign Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) and Foreign Department of Finance (FDF), the GCSCC conducted a CMM review in June 2020. Switzerland plans to use the results of the study for the evaluation of the Confederations cybersecurity structures.

The conclusions of the study can then be incorporated into the evaluation of the Confederation's cybersecurity structures, which were created within the framework of the National strategy for the protection of Switzerland against cyber risks (NCS) for the period 2018–22. Conducting and publishing the study will also send out a strong signal beyond Swiss borders. "The study emphasises Switzerland's willingness to engage in fact-based discussion with other states. This transparency builds trust and strengthens cooperation, and our approach also encourages other states to undergo their own evaluations.

FDFA's Special Envoy for Cyber Foreign and Security Policy.
