Marcel Zumbühl, Information Security Officer at Swiss Post, welcomed around 30 students to the event. He gave them a presentation on Swiss Post IT an its technology focus areas, including artificial intelligence, chatbots and blockchain, as well as their application in services such as billing online, e-voting, digital health, smart buttons or Swiss Post’s parcel logistics. He underlined that Swiss Post relies on participative security. This means Swiss Post invites IT specialists and ethical hackers to test its applications for vulnerabilities. The bug-bounty programme, where Swiss Post’s rewards confirmed vulnerabilities, provides incentive to participate. He invited the students to put Swiss Post’s systems to the test themselves.
