IT Security on the Internet and on private devices

Content: The courses deal with possibilities to increase IT security in the private sector and how to assess risks that everyone takes more consciously. After all, both the dangers and the workplace are increasingly shifting to the Internet. In addition to basic IT security issues, the topics of password management, encryption (e.g. of e-mails), phishing, DSGVO (General Data Protection Regulation), malware from the Internet, and the proper setup of common, private devices are discussed.

Each of the courses deals with its own main topic and can be taken independently of each other and in any order. The courses are accompanied by small practical exercises and offer room for questions from the participants.

Target Group: students
