Workshop: Security Awareness

To master the new challenges generated by digitalisation in higher education, we need new interpersonal and digital skills. Handling data and using the Internet belong to our daily routine, but what about security? Institutions of higher education are not exempt of cybercrime, which is increasing significantly every year, while attacks are getting more and more sophisticated. Technology can't always keep up, the end users themselves play a crucial role. Security needs to be involved in the daily life of every employee and every private user.

The solution is trying to raise awareness while helping the tech-experts explain. We would like to increase awareness for security issues and discuss with you how an efficient collaboration between the different stakeholders of the Swiss e-learning community can support the fight against cybercrime.
