IT security for access to GEVER

Federal Office of Meteorology and Climatology (MeteoSwiss)

Key facts

The Federal Office of Meteorology and Climatology (MeteoSwiss) is the national weather service. On behalf of the Confederation, MeteoSwiss provides weather and climate services for the benefit of the public, the authorities and civil and military aviation. As a result, the requirements for the availability and functionality of information and communication technologies (ICT) are very high, which is why MeteoSwiss is also supervised by the Federal Office of Civil Aviation. Due to the special technical and operational requirements, MeteoSwiss operates the ICT infrastructure itself with only a few exceptions and is therefore not directly integrated into the federal network. Instead, it is only connected in a controlled manner.
