Third Security and Privacy Lunch is on the way (16-08-2019)

The next Security and Privacy Lunch at Café Gold is coming up. We would be delighted if we could once again welcome numerous researchers from a wide variety of organizations from Karlsruhe. The next lunch will take place on 20.08 at 13 o'clock. Also for "spontaneous" visits we ask for feedback to Rebekka Golling  so that we can reserve a sufficiently large table.

SECUSO cooperates with Stadtwerke Ettlingen (14-08-2019)

Within the framework of the KASTEL project, the research group cooperates with Stadtwerke Ettlingen.
The cooperation aims to analyze the process of IT security mediation of the municipal utilities.
Based on the experiences of the research group and the current state analysis, proposals will be developed to help disseminate the current IT security information and measures with defined processes within the company. This improvement will then be evaluated in a study.

„Society in the Digital Change – Digitalitisation in Dialogue“ (22-07-2019)

The research Group SECUSO represents KASTEL in the project „Digitalisation in Dialogue“ (Digilog). Digitalisation influences humans in many ways. Many questions are asked, e.g. how does Digitalisation influences our personal life and what risks and chances occur. To assure a positive transformation in future the main topics of digitalisation – „autonomy, knowledge and participation“ are discussed by various research institutions in Baden-Württemberg in order to provide scientifically grounded orientation knowledge.
