openHPI Course Program 2021
Already next week, on January 13, we will start the new year with a series of three short courses on cybersecurity. The two-week English-language courses Confidential Communication in the Internet, Digital Identities and Cyberthreats: Malware will be taught by Prof. Christoph Meinel. They show what risks the Internet poses and what security precautions you should take against them. If you wish, you can take the Cybersecurity exam on the material from all three courses and receive a qualified certificate, which is otherwise only issued for six-week courses.
Starting March 17, Prof. Meinel and book author Tatiana Gayvoronskaya will reveal what's behind blockchain technology and what it's currently being used for.
