Cyber Security

The world’s combined information base is rapidly increasing and new methods are enabling this data to be compiled and evaluated. This has also brought with it an increased risk of cyber espionage and abuse. It is therefore important that modern users are aware of the basic principles of how to navigate data space safely and know the potential consequences of various actions.

The Cyber Security focus programme is concerned with these and similar topics. Its aim is to raise awareness of the topic of Cyber Security among the general public, the political arena and SMEs and thus ensure more conscious data handling.
