It was great to participate in the Ditact women’s IT studies (Aug 20 – Sept 1, 2018) in Salzburg. Both as a lecturer and as a participant. 208 female participants were able to choose from more than 50 course offers. It could be chosen from the modules: Data Protection, IT Security and Privacy, Machine Learning, Web and Introduction to Computer Science and many more.
I addition there were a lot of interesting lunch lectures, e.g. „Medicine meets Artificial Intelligence ‑ Neural Networks & Smarter Diagnosis“ held by Dr. Jana Kemnitz.
With my lecture: “Is the password dead? Safe authentication methods” I hit the nerve of the time. In everyday life, as well as in business life, secure authentication procedures become more and more urgent. But the users are largely left to their own devices to ensure that everything is safe. I gave an overview of the currently available authentication methods and a country comparison between Sweden, Austria and Germany. Because of the abundance of my facts, many practical tests of multiple factor authentication, and the urgency of the topic, I would like to extend my lecture to a whole course day next year.
Instead of course materials I designed a website (http://ccc.ziske.de). For that I’ve quickly taught myself WordPress. I was very happy to be able to deepen my knowledge in the course <Wordpress compact> to be better prepared for the next work on this website.
During the opening event, the keynote and subsequent panel discussion were about identifying ways to get more women interested in IT, and how mono-educational computer science programs favored the influx. In sum, the overall picture of the discussion and contributions showed that women’s degree programs in IT and computer science study courses still make sense.
The ECCWS2018 held in Oslo was a great event, two days full of interesting subjects.
After the keynotes the conference split into many interesting topics as: Cross-discipline Research, Recent trends in Multimedia Security and Forensics, Networks issues, Mobile Technology, Hackers and Cyber Coercion, Ontologies and Theory Building, IACS-based Critical Infrastructures, Legal Issues, Digital Forensics, Understanding Cyber Events, Cyber Warfare and Cyber Issues as well as Practical Applications and Cyber Security for Internet of Things. The PhD Colloquium made up a large part with many interesting topics. In sum 77 presentations were held by people coming from about 20 countries.
We succeeded in getting across our ideas about “Get ahead of Coming Disruptions in Cyber Security by working Collaboratively“ in the space of 20 minutes. Our presentation was based on an online demo of our app “Scrambled Secrets”. Which was unique because most people dare not fail in a demo.
We are very proud that our topics has been published in the conference materials. It is our first academic publication!!!

Get ahead Coming Disruptions in Cyber Security by Working Collaboratively
The next event, the 18th European Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security is taking place on 4‑5 July 2019 at the University of Coimbra. Maybe we would like to participate again with new ideas.
Our abstract entitled: ‘’Get ahead Coming Disruptions in Cyber Security by Working Collaboratively’’ has been selected as a contribution to the 17th European Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security (ECCWS) 2018.
We are looking forward to demonstrating our thinking regarding Collaborative Security and PassSpace by showing ONLINE how multiple instances together authenticate access to sensitive data using different platforms and different tools.
Come and see us in Oslo
