    Amazement is the first step to knowledge” – Louis Pasteur
    Theft and blackmailing of data and confidential information has become a widespread criminal activity in recent years. Small and medium-sized companies, but also large corporations and nations, have to deal with this state of threat. Simple measures can significantly increase security. Still, security is not an individual achievement, but a joint success.

    In different roles – as both perpetrator and victim – our speakers present simulations of typical attacks in the form of an entertaining live hacking. They show how easy it is to spy sensitive data and what consequences this can have for companies and private individuals. This is followed by recommendations to avoid damage.
