The German IT Security Award, supported by the Horst Goertz Foundation, is the most generous, privately endowed award in Germany. Last year, the first prize was assigned jointly to KIT (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology), FZI (the Information Technology Research Center of KIT) and Wibu-Systems. The recognition for best IT security innovation, accompanied by a donation of 100,000 euro, went to Blurry Box® - a pioneering solution for software protection that that does not rely on the secrecy of the methods.
To formally celebrate such an outstanding result and the key role of Karlsruhe as one of the top 5 European technological hubs, KA-IT-Si has created a special event where entrepreneurial and academic professionals can network and exchange more futuristic plans.
Oliver Winzenried, CEO and co-founder of Wibu-Systems, as well as Prof. Joern Mueller-Quade, Director of the Center for Applied Security Technology (KASTEL) at KIT, will join the luncheon and be open to illustrate the company’s strategies to support manufacturers in their transition towards a secure Industry 4.0 era.
