Security of information and communications infrastructures

A Federal Council report to the security policy commissions of the confederation's councils, published in 2001, indicates that the security of information and communications infrastructures in extraordinary situations is substantially guaranteed.

Absolute security, however, cannot exist. Nevertheless, there is a certain need for action regarding personnel and organisational matters. The report considers ownership and related aspects as risks which can to a large extent be countered by appropriate measures. At the time of the report, there were a number of parliamentary initiatives in connection with Swisscom's intended disposal of broadcasting installations and the need for a general risk evaluation.
