Public Safety Communications Europe (PSCE) is happy to announce that the webinar “Phasing out of the confinement measures – How can IT tools help make the transition?” on May 7, was a big success!
Our speakers - Ms Martina Karl, from the Technical University of Munich, Mr Gerry Foitik, from the Austrian Red Cross, and Mr Peter Eberl, Deputy Head of Cybersecurity and Digital Privacy, DG CONNECT - were very eloquent and articulated, allowing the public to be more informed about the social tracing topic, in particular regarding privacy issues related to the mobile applications used to tackle the corona virus. Besides principles and general features, details were also provided on the implementation of the STOPP CORONA app set-up by the Austrian Red Cross that went live on March 25.
Overall, we welcomed nearly 100 enthusiastic participants - amongst them18 Member States were represented - who stated the webinar as being “very useful and informative”. During the webinar and after each speaker finished presenting, PSCE moderated a small forum of Q&A.
In the meantime, stay tuned for our second webinar, we will shortly announce more details!
