In 1999 and 2000 S.W.I.S. Group represented Swiss Industry interests (through the organisation "Vorort", today "Economiesuisse") in the deliberations leading up to the Swiss Digital Signature Law (ZertES) which was enacted on January 1, 2005. 

In September 2001 S.W.I.S. GROUP became one of the three founders of SwissSign AG "The digital Identity Specialists. Made in Switzerland". SwissSign is a CSP and is certified to issue X.509 certificates according to the Swiss Digital Signature law.

In May 2010 the capital was increased to one million Swiss Francs. We had a successful exit from this project in May 2013.
