IT Security Awareness Days 2021: nehme kostenlos und ohne Registrierung teil

Online and without any registration – the IT Security Awareness Days (Source: TU Braunschweig)

IT is all around us. We use it in our free time and at work, both at home and on the road. The possibilities it offers us are almost unlimited. But with these possibilities also comes great responsibility, as the use of IT is not always without risks. Cyberattacks are no longer isolated incidents and can affect anyone. With more attacks, there is a need for more IT security and a higher level of awareness. For this reason, several German universities are campaigning for greater awareness in this field.

In order to raise awareness, several German universities have now joined forces for the second time to organise the IT Security Awareness Days. During this online event series, a total of 24 lectures on the topic of information security will be held from 4 October to 12 November 2021. The following universities are actively involved: TU Braunschweig, TU Darmstadt, Uni Hildesheim, KU Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, Uni Göttingen/GWDG, Uni Marburg, Uni Osnabrück, Leuphana Universität Lüneburg, Uni Duisburg-Essen, Uni Köln. The series of events is open to the public. A registration is not required.
