"Nachgehackt - the podcast on IT security" is now on air

Our lives are becoming increasingly digital – and the topic of IT security is therefore becoming more and more important. The new format “Nachgehackt – der Podcast zu IT-Security”, produced at Ruhr-Universität Bochum, aims to raise awareness, inform and provide tips for digital practice. The first episode is now available. IT security concerns everyone. But for many people, the topic still seems daunting. They often say: It’s all too complex, too complicated, too incomprehensible. The “Nachgehackt” format wants to change that. In the podcast, topics and areas related to IT security are presented in an easily accessible and entertaining way. The host Henrik Hanses interviews experts and other exciting guests and explores the world of IT security together with the listeners. In the process, the “self-confessed IT layman” sometimes asks questions if he doesn’t understand something. “Nachgehackt” has been on the air since July 26, with a new episode every 14 days. To kick things off, Henrik Hanses talks to Prof. Dr. Christof Paar from the Max Planck Institute for Security and Privacy in Bochum about how cryptography determines our everyday lives and how important privacy is in the digital world. More episodes of the first season:
  • Episode 2: “Internet of Things-Security” with Dr. Heiko Koepke and Dr. Christian Zenger (both managing directors & founders of PHYSEC GmbH).
  • Episode 3: “Cyberwar” with Dr.-Ing. Christian Mainka (Horst Görtz Institute for IT Security) and Prof. Dr. Constantin Goschler (Faculty of History, RUB)
  • Episode 4: “Hacking in Hollywood” with Dr. des. Mary Shnayien (Institute for Media Studies, RUB)
  • Episode 5: “IT Security & Startups” with Friederike Schneider (Cube 5) and Matteo Große-Kampmann (Managing Director & Founder AWARE7 GmbH)
TV and radio host Henrik Hanses leads through the format. The podcast is presented by Cube 5 – Creating Security, the Horst Görtz Institute for IT Security at Ruhr Universität Bochum, PHYSEC GmbH, Bochum Economic Development and eurobits e. V. “Nachgehackt” is available on Spotify, Apple Podcast and wherever podcasts are available. As a video podcast, “Nachgehackt” can be seen on Youtube.
