Training Sessions on Information Security

We regularly offer training sessions covering topics such as password security and phishing in order to make information security more accessible. These training sessions are mostly offered through the continuing education program of the university. The secretary mailing list informs about the individual training sessions in due time. For a group of 10 people or more, there is also the possibility to organize an individual training session, e.g. for an individual chair.

Important Information

Due to the current situation, our training sessions take place as online seminars on Zoom.

The number of participants in a training session is limited, since we want to foster the dialog between the participants and the instructor, similar to a training session in person.

Unfortunately, training sessions at your chair or department are not possible. If you are interested in an online seminar for your chair or your department, please contact us at infosicherheit uni-mannheim.de.

How to register for a training session

Please register for the individual training sessions through the continuing education program. You can find details on the registration in the PDF for each training session. These are distributed via the secretary mailing list in due time. Unfortunately, registering with us is not possible.

Did you know? If you are a group of 10 persons or more, we are also happy to offer individual training sessions at your chair or department. If you are interested, you may contact us at infosicherheit uni-mannheim.de.
