Cyber Security

This training provides an overview of the security domain, its cryptographic building blocks and the security engineering processes that are required to build secure systems. The participants can actively participate in practical exercises to directly apply the training material. The training will be performed by two senior cyber security engineers who actively work in cyber security projects in the areas of medical, automotive, and industrial engineering.
