On August 4, 2016, CISPA researcher Dr. Ben Stock and his team gave two workshops on IT Security.
They were organized as part of the annual “UniCamp” at Saarland University.
Every year, 40 girls aged between 14 and 16 receive the opportunity to participate in a one-week program on campus attending STEM-related workshops and talks and enjoying a rich cultural program.
The event aims to encourage female pupils to consider new career paths by presenting them with fascinating career opportunities in the area of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
After a short introduction to Computer Science highlighting the increasing importance of IT Security, the participants could put their knowledge into practice and experiment with secure and unsecure passwords and access controlls
by means of real-life examples.
