C4DT Webinar on Critical Infrastructures in Switzerland: are they crisis-resilient?

In times of crises, we become acutely aware how important infrastructures are as a basis for society to continue to function … and to recover in the aftermath. But this is not only the question of the importance of foundational infrastructures, such as telecom, postal services, public transport and electricity, it is also the question of their resilience. In this webinar, we will discuss these questions for the case of Switzerland, together with representatives of the major Swiss infrastructure providers – Swissgrid, SBB, Swiss Post and Swisscom. The webinar will be introduced and moderated by Prof. Matthias Finger, Swiss Post Chair in Management of Network Industries at EPFL and will benefit from the critical view of a representative of the Swiss Confederation in charge of the national security network.

Wednesday, June 2nd, 10:30-12:00, remote.

Its goal is to simplify and accelerate the process of identifying people who have been in contact with an infected person, thus providing a technological foundation to help slow the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. During this public webinar, we will discuss how the application works as well as how to build trust to encourage the population to adopt a technology solution.
