How secure are our critical infrastructures? This is the question asked by the digital lecture series “Secure Critical Infrastructures” starting 3.11.2021 every Wednesday from 16.15-17.55 during the winter term 2021/22. The series is organized by the special departments of SEEMOO (Prof. Hollick), PEASEC (Prof. Reuter) and Modern and Contemporary History (Prof. Engels) is organized.

Critical infrastructures, or KRITIS in short, are, according to BMI, “organizations or facilities with important significance for the state community, and in case of their failure or impairment, lasting supply bottlenecks, significant disruptions to public safety or other dramatic consequences would occur.”

The lecture series, which is already in its 8th episode, takes a look at various of these critical infrastructures and discusses their security challenges. To do so, speakers from various research institutions, companies, public administrations, and businesses give a weekly expert lecture.

This semester, a wide variety of institutions with different topics are represented, ranging from the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) and the Hanau Clinic to the Futurium Berlin and many more. A detailed overview regarding the topic plan and the participation opportunities for students as well as interested members of the public can be found here.
