CrossComITS presents stories on cyber security at Digitaltag 2024

Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences

In cooperation with the Evangelische Erwachsenenbildung an Sieg und Rhein, Prof Dr Wolfgang Heiden presented entertaining stories about cybersecurity in two readings at the Digitaltag 2024 as part of the CrossComITS project at H-BRS in Siegburg.

The CrossComITS project, funded by the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, examines the needs and challenges of vulnerable groups in society, such as people with a history of migration, senior citizens and young people, regarding digitalisation.

The aim is to develop a strategy to strengthen their IT security skills. it is therefore vital to identify specific support to protect these groups from the risks of digitalisation and promote their digital sovereignty. In the long term, the findings of the project should enable these groups to participate in the digital society in a secure and self-determined manner.
