IT-Security Awareness Days 2022 Online event series on information security in October

How can data protection be guaranteed in the home office? How can I protect myself from attacks via the USB interface? And how can I protect my privacy on the net with a “best of” browser extensions? The IT Security Awareness Days (IT-SAD) answer these and other questions in thirteen lectures. The online event series will take place from 10 to 21 October and is being organised for the fourth time by TU Braunschweig together with several German universities. The lectures on the topic of information security are also explicitly aimed at non-IT-savvy employees and students.
