C4DT Konferenz: Der Service Public im digitalen Zeitalter

Im Oktober 2022 veröffentlicht das Bundesamtes für Kommunikation (BAKOM) seinen Grundlagenbericht an den Bundesrat zu den wichtigsten Herausforderungen, denen sich der Service Public aufgrund der Digitalisierung gegenübersieht.

Aus diesem Anlass bringt diese eintägige C4DT-Konferenz Experten und Expertinnen aus der Verwaltung, den Service Public Unternehmen, den Regulatoren, der Wissenschaft, der Politik und der Zivilgesellschaft zusammen, um sich kritisch damit auseinanderzusetzen, wie die Digitalisierung unser Verständnis und die Bereitstellung des Service Public verändert. Zudem werden mögliche Lösungsansätze für sich abzeichnenden Herausforderungen in vier interaktiven Panels diskutiert.

Mit dieser Veranstaltung bieten wir die Möglichkeit verschiedene Blickwinkel auf dieses wichtige Thema kennenzulernen und sich mit Vertretern aus dem Service Public selbst, sowie aus Politik, Wirtschaft und der Gesellschaft auszutauschen.

C4DT Conference on Cyberattack Reporting Obligation

The Federal Council described cyberattacks as “a serious threat for Switzerland’s security and economy” and proposed a law for a reporting obligation for cyberattacks on critical infrastructures in its press release of January 12th 2022.

This 1-day conference, organized by C4DT in collaboration with UNIL’s Faculty of Law, Criminal Sciences and Public Administration (FDCA) and Trust Valley, will bring together government, public and private sectors and academia to discuss the proposed reporting obligation. Through case studies of past cyberattacks in Switzerland and simulations of possible critical infrastructure attacks, we aim to raise awareness of the cyber-risks with communal, cantonal and federal authorities, critical infrastructure providers as well as all organisations impacted by this law.

Applied Machine Learning Days – AI & Cybersecurity

In this track, we explore the role of AI for cybersecurity – its blessing and its curse – and how the private sector, government and academia should collaborate to reduce the threat landscape of AI systems as well as to isolate them with safeguard mechanisms that make it easy to shut down if things start to go wrong.

AI & Ethics Week

Artificial Intelligence holds great promise for the economy and society. It has also led to the explosion of new ethical challenges, such as biased decision making, filter bubbles, data protection, face recognition, deep fakes and cyber security.
During this week we aim to create awareness of the ethical and privacy dilemmas with AI, explored from 4 different angles – business impact, cultural, technological and regulatory.

Fin & Tech Conference 2021 on Crypto-assets and Asset Tokenization

Decentralized Ledger Technology has the potential to reshape the traditional financial system. An example is decentralized finance, which allows people to combine open-source building blocks into sophisticated financial products utilizing DLT. Central banks, as another example, face growing competition from private actors offering their own digital alternative to physical cash. However, the current lack of clear legal and technological standards prevents market players and institutions from fully exploiting the potential DLT.

This conference features latest research and insights on crypto-assets and asset tokenization, and their impact on banking and financial market infrastructures. The event combines a broad spectrum of stakeholders, which combine legal and regulatory, technological, financial and economic as well as civil society perspectives. It addresses academics and practitioners alike, and shall foster the public dialogue and interaction across institutions.

Digital Trust 2025

This conference will take place on October 15th, 9:00-17:00, at the Maison de la Paix of the Graduate Institute, Geneva (IHEID). It will address a number of key questions: How does a lack of digital trust manifest itself today? Is this justified, based on current privacy and security issues, or is it exaggerated? Understated? What lessons can be learned from other sectors on how to build the trust that will be needed for our digital future. What is possible in the digital future, and what will be lost without digital trust? And finally, how should that digital trust be built?
The event is jointly organised by IHEID’s Centre for Trade and Economic Integration (CTEI) and EPFL’s Center for Digital Trust (C4DT).

Zero-trust cloud week – data protection in the cloud

Today, it’s often more cost-effective to host services in the cloud instead of in its own premises. But how protected is our sensitive data in the cloud? We readily encrypt data in storage and protect it while in transit. But what about when data is “in use”? It is a legitimate concern in increasingly cloud-dominated infrastructures. Moreover, how to make sense of the different laws governing the sensitive data?

During this week we will explore how privacy-enhancing computation technologies complement a zero-trust strategy by addressing the vulnerability of data in use in the cloud. We will also discuss the legal framework which is required to balance economical interest of companies with the individual’s data privacy concerns.
