Information Security in the age of digitalization at HAB aktuell

At the event HAB aktuell of Hessische Akademie für Bürowirtschaft e. V. (HAB) Dr. André Kudra, CIO of esatus AG and Deputy Chairman of the HAB, gave a lecture on Information Security in the age of digitalization: The technical development is progressing rapidly and digital networking is taking its way in all areas of life. Numerous objects are now equipped with a permanent internet connection and constantly collect data. Of course, only in the user’s best interest, so the promise of companies producing the devices. A critical examination of digitalization, especially in the context of Information Security, is up to date and necessary. Ten provocative theses sparked the intense discussion with the participants of the event, which took place on November 17th and 18th 2017 in Grünberg.

The presentation of the lecture is available for download on the HAB website.

esatus AG appreciated the diversified event in a pleasant atmosphere, professionally hosted by renowned non-profit association HAB. However, the inspiring discussions and the exciting exchange of experiences at HAB aktuell possibly happened in this setting for the last time. For more than 50 years it was HAB’s essential purpose to deliver qualified training programs for teachers in the field of business and administration as well as for business administration staff. Sadly, demand for this particular type of teachers practically ceased to exist, hence the association is now forced to initiate the liquidation process. After decades of countless trainings and further education courses with experienced, qualified lecturers in the driver’s seat, HAB regrettably reaches this last milestone in 2018. When the dissolution of the association comes to implementation, HAB aktuell 2017 was the last official event of the institution HAB.
