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.

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 infosicherheitmail-uni-mannheim.de.
