On July 6th, in the Saarlandhalle everything revolved around a topic that is becoming more and more suitable for everyday use – creating awareness for IT security. A day full of exciting lectures, hands-on expert rounds, and workshops provided valuable impulses as well as the opportunity to network with regional cybersecurity companies. Despite lively discussions, the conclusion was that we can only meet the challenges of cybersecurity together. To underline this, the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) announced the launch of Saarland as a new pilot region of the Cyber Security Network (CSN). The support of political representatives, Prime Minister Anke Rehlinger and Economic Minister Jürgen Barke, also confirmed the importance of the issue.

We are delighted that our sister company sequire technology was able to help shape this special day as an exhibitor and congratulate the two finalists of the hackathon, who were awarded by Managing Director Dr. Christoph Endres at the end of the day. Special thanks go to the East Side Fab, the Saarland Chamber of Industry and Commerce, and Saaris e. V. for the smooth organization of the event.
