From February 1–29, 2020, the first Testlab tackled the complex issue of digital security. Here, our partners ComCode, IABG, the ZD.B and the ISH presented their digital security products and solutions to intrigued passersby. Around 13,000 visitors visited the Testlab in February and nearly 22,000 passengers battled it out against an AR installation that simulated virtual robots trying to steal data or inject malicious software.
How secure is your digital information?
Many people think that digital security is a matter only for IT experts. In reality, this couldn’t be further from the truth. And certainly not since digitalization has become ubiquitous in everyday life. Each time you pick up your smartphone, post something on social media, or shop or bank online, your personal data is out there. Suddenly, you’re not incognito anymore. No wonder hacking and identity theft have long been commonplace. And yet so many people remain ignorant of the dangers. The digital security Testlab set itself the challenge to change this.
