Most small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Germany take many technical measures to protect their data and secure computer systems. However, training employees accordingly and creating sufficient awareness of cyber risks falls by the wayside in some companies. This is what CISPA researcher Nicolas Huaman Groschopf found out in a large-scale interview study. The study was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics (BMWK ) and the VHV Foundation with more than 1.2 million euros. The BMWK contributed the lion's share with almost one million. Huaman Groschopf presented his findings at the renowned IT security conference USENIX Security Symposium.

We are committed to the highest international academic standards and offer a world-class research environment that grants extensive resources to a wide range of researchers and that constitutes an attractive destination for the best talents and scientists from all countries.
CISPA PODCAST TL;DR
That text was way too long, so you couldn't bother to read it? We feel you! In TL;DR, CISPA's first podcast, we talk to researchers about their work on cybersecurity and artificial intelligence once a month and try to ask them exactly the same questions that you are asking yourself.
People from 38 nations work at CISPA. That's why you'll find conversations in both German and English in this feed.
Have fun listening!
