Critical Processes and Infrastructure at ETH Zurich

We supported a working group at ETH Zirkow in creating an overview of the university’s critical processes and infrastructure, which can now be used as a basis to help mitigate potential negative effects in the event of an incident. We also developed measures to strengthen the university’s critical processes. Our analysis was based on a business impact analysis (BIA) and the federal government's approach to protecting critical infrastructure.
