The aim of the SecHuman Summer School at the RUB is to illuminate IT-Security not only from the technical but also from the social side. From 3 to 6 June 2019, experts from a wide range of disciplines will exchange views on topics ranging from hacks to door locks to the masculine rhetoric of IT-Security.

Stars among the guests

Among the guests will be Linus Neumann, speaker of the Chaos Computer Club in Germany, and two experts from the Federal Criminal Police Office who will speak on the subject of author recognition of texts. The programme also includes a Hacking Competition organised by doctoral students of the Forschungskolleg.

The Summer School programme and further information on the speakers can be found here.
