Welcome to the Research Group SECUSO
Security • Usability • Society
We are happy to announce that an other awareness NoPhish video is
available. The five-minute video explains what dangerous attachments are
and how to detect them.
The video is a result of scientific evaluation of the effectiveness in
regard to recognition of fraudulent messages with dangerous attachments.
The video was developed in collaboration with Alex Lehmann.
The certificate has been extended so that now business and IT students who are interested in information security can receive the KASTEL certificate. The Competence Center for Applied Security Technology (KASTEL) is one of Germany's three Cybersecurity Competence Centers initiated by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in March 2011
We have updated our Flyer „Fraudulent messages - how to detect
fraudulent and phishing mails“. Not only detecting these messages is
important, but also an adequate reaction to them. For this we now refer
to the BSI (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik): if you
are unsure whether a message is a fraudulent message or if you have
fallen for a fraudulent message, you can ask the BSI for advice. Soon
the leaflet will also be available in English.
Our member Peter Mayer has been graduated as a PhD (Dr.-Ing.) on November 15, 2019 with the thesis entitled "Secure and Usable User Authentication".
