Hack the Factory - Cyber Security Newsgame
Date: 03 Sep 2018

Demonstrate your knowledge of cyber security. Only those who answer the questions correctly will hack successfully.

Cyber attacks are a daily reality in our economy. Not only office IT is affected, but also consumer electronics, medical technology and production systems. Human error is often responsible for successful attacks. It is therefore very important to increase attention and knowledge in terms of cyber security. Newsgames are a new approach: with "Hack the Factory" the ZVEI wants to convey knowledge in a playful way. Players take on the role of a hacker and try to penetrate a networked factory. Only those who answer the questions correctly will achieve their goal and ultimately know the most important facts about cyber security.

The newsgame is available in German only.

Security Check for Email Systems
Date: 15 Sep 2018

At this year’s event we are offering companies a security check for their email system. The activity aims at providing an insight into the configurations and vulnerabilities of email systems.

After registration we will simulate common threats in emails and thereby check your email system for vulnerabilities. Afterwards we will together with you and/or your IT manager analyze some of the most important configurations and functions with a standardized questionnaire. At the end you will receive the results and findings.

Secure e-mails
Date: 15 Sep 2018

The email is still the most popular way to share information and files. But hardly anyone is aware that all is sent in clear text. This is fatal, especially in the business environment, since emails can be intercepted with relatively little effort. We show you how to keep on sending emails, but protected - without annoying encryption programs. Please register for one of our webinars or download our factsheet. Webinar Dates: Tuesday 02.10.18 10:30 am - 11:00 am Tuesday 16.10.18 10:00 am - 10:30 am Thursday 25.10.18 02:00 pm - 02:30 pm

Poster Exhibition as part of the European Cyber Security Month 2018 at the University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld
Date: 22 Oct 2018

The poster exhibition "Cyber Security" of Business Informatics Master students of the University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld shall create greater awareness but also a broader base of cyber security knowledge.

At many universities, cyber security is already on the curriculum, but it often fails to make the leap from teaching to daily practice. The poster exhibition "Cyber Security" of Business Informatics Master students of the University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld should close this gap. Their posters are intended for all members and visitors of the university. The goal is to create greater awareness but also a broader base of cyber security knowledge. The posters will be exhibited from 22.10.18 to 29.10.18 on the special area on the main floor of the University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld.

CYBERSECURITY CONFERENCE 2018
Date: 29 Oct 2018

The Cybersecurity Conference Rhein-Neckar is a unique event concept that unites business, science and the public. The idea of the Cybersecurity Conference came to the participants by recognizing that cyber security in German companies and households is still far from reaching the level it should be in order to adequately protect sensitive company and personal data from hacker attacks.

In the age of digital transformation, there are hardly any processes in companies that are no longer supported by IT. Information technologies dominate our everyday lives and have put us in a certain degree of dependence. In the context of the Cybersecurity Conference, exciting lectures and practical examples from various perspectives will illustrate the dangers this presents and how best to arm oneself and a company against cyber attacks.
Why the Rhine-Neckar region as the venue?
Numerous IT companies are located in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region. It is considered the "Silicon Valley" of Germany. A large number of hidden champions, which make Germany one of the countries with the highest exports, have also settled in the region. The concentrated IT competence at the location, which unites three federal states (Baden-Württemberg, Hessen and Rhineland-Palatinate), together with the economic strength of the local companies, is virtually predestined to counteract the increasing cybercrime. By pooling the knowledge of regional experts from business, science and the public, we want to make our region a pioneer in the field of cybersecurity, protect the valuable assets of our companies and help the inhabitants of the region to make their daily lives more conscious and safer.

Cyber Security – Approaches to Protect Critical Infrastructure
Date: 07 Nov 2018

How safe are we really from digital threats? Panel discussion @Berlin Science Week

In a world that allows increasing interconnectivity and constant evolution in digital matters, our IT systems are at risk more than ever. Digital attackers are constantly refining their strategies – threats lurk behind any networked digital device. Cyber security is becoming a major challenge, making it a key factor for the success of any institution.

But how can we protect critical infrastructure from these threats? What measures are already in place? Will possible attacks ever be diminished?

Given the huge importance of this issue, the organizers (AIT Austrian Institute of Technology, Complexity Science Hub Vienna and ETH Zurich) have taken the opportunity to set up a panel discussion as part of this year’s Berlin Science Week, featuring renowned experts on the subject. The aim is to inspire a discussion on the latest developments in protecting critical infrastructure, and to give a chance to the public to pose any burning questions on this topic.
