Safer Internet Day 2020

On February 11th, 2020 the KIT will provide information on the topic of IT security with a wide range of offers and materials within the framework of Safer Internet Day (SID). Most of these are now also available in English.

In 2020, the focus at KIT will be on the detection of phishing e-mails and other fraudulent messages and the safe handling of these. The event is jointly organized by the research group "Security, Usability, Society" (SECUSO), the Steinbuch Centre for Computing (SCC) and the Information Security Officer (ISB).

The SID has been held annually since 2004 and is an international day of action to promote online safety and a better Internet.
