Cyber Security Policy

Sebastian Michael MĂźller

PULS

The ongoing digitalization of all aspects of life offers enormous opportunities, particularly for economic growth, societal development and research. However, it also gives rise to several new threats. Critical infrastructures, government communications, military assets and political processes increasingly rely on information technology, making them vulnerable to cyber attacks. These technologies and their use are now relevant for national security and states seek to address this challenge. As a result, cyber security has become one of the most pressing subjects of national, regional and international bodies and initiatives.
This course aims at providing students with an overview and practical understanding of the most significant topics in the field, national actors in Germany as well as regional and international processes in the area of cyber security and defence.

The course will be held as a block seminar and involve excursions (if possible and in accordance with applicable covid-19 regulations at the time). Times indicated in PULS are indicative at the time of planning.
Further, more detailed information will be provided by the lecturer closer to the beginning of the course and will be d and communicated to students as appropriate.
