Game Jam – Unveil the privacy threat

Am 7. und 8. Oktober 2017 findet eine Veranstaltung an der Schnittstelle zwischen Smart City, Privacy und Security statt. Auf dieser entwickeln wir gemeinsam mit Game Designern und Privacy- sowie Security-Experten sogenannte Serious Games, mit denen datengetriebene Unternehmen ihre Mitarbeiter gegen Privacy- bzw. Security-Risiken schulen können. Das außergewöhnliche Format verspricht, die teils komplexe Materie auf intuitiv verständliche und kreative Weise vermitteln zu können.

How to build smart cities in a privacy and security-friendly way, when more and more movements and human actions are tracked by means of public wifi and camera systems? How to develop the right infrastructure? In particular, how to sensitise employees handling risky data in businesses, which provide smart applications not only for smart cities but for a lot more technological solutions we are confronted with today? In more general words, how to combine state-of-the-art privacy and security and creative thinking? The Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society is organising a unique 2-days event for game designers and experts in the field of privacy and security.
