Nearly 500 people attended the SCION Day on 26 January 2022 online. The day brought both SCION early adopters and academia closer together. We would like to thank all our speakers and guests for their participation. A special thanks goes to our distinguished guest speakers Dr. Andréa M. Maechler, Member of the Governing Board of the SNB, and Jos Dijsselhof, CEO of SIX, who shed light on how the banking industry uses SCION to increase cyber resilience for the Swiss financial infrastructure.
