Cyber Security

Every year we organize for you the Live event Community Congress and each time we focus on a relevant social topic from the IT security area. Through our activities, we primarily promote the direct transfer of knowledge and technology from the university sector to business and society. We strengthen the networking between actors from science, business and politics and are particularly pleased about the participation of people from society and the public.


On May 11, 2023, the last Community Congress of StartUpSecure KASTEL, took place in the TRIANGEL Open Space on Kronenplatz in Karlsruhe. This year the topics were cyber security and critical infrastructures. We are thankful for the valuable impulses of Dr. Michael Ebner – Group CISO & Director Information Security at EnBW, Dr. Emilia Grass – Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Chair of General Business Administration and Production & Mirko Ross – CEO and founder of asvin GmbH. Moreover, there was a poster session in which researchers presented their research topics on our stage. The best poster won the Best Poster Award of EUR 1,000.
