The world cannot be imagined anymore without networked systems – although there is no adequate security for them yet. Increasing data, a high demand for security and availability of content and society’s dependence on networked systems is today’s challenge politics, economy and science are facing.

In order to overcome those difficulties, all involved players need to work together. In the context of the eGovernment lab, CSC, HP and FOKUS will now offensively face those challenges.

For that the cooperation partners opened the first Cybersecurity Demonstration Center (CDC) worldwide together with EMC/RSA, McAfee and Sourcefire. Fraunhofer FOKUS therefore provides a complex IT infrastructure in order to demonstrate different scenarios of attack with an integral and integrated approach. The aim is to analyze how to prevent cyber attacks in a better way.
