Self-determined and safe in the digital world

IT security in everyday life


The IT exhibition for the Federal Ministry of Education and Research

Cybercrime is on the rise: According to a study by the industry association Bitkom, the damage to the German economy in 2019 amounted to over 100 billion euros. Not only politics and economy have to develop solutions, also the average user has to be able to protect himself – as cybersecurity affects everyone! In order to make the topic tangible, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research showed an exhibition on the topic of cybersecurity, which was conceived, designed and realised by Archimedes Exhibitions. The exhibition was part of the conference “Self-determined and safe in the digital world”, which took place in Berlin in February 2017 and was initiated by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Afterwards, it moved  for six months to the largest computer museum in the world – the Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum in Paderborn.

At six theme islands and on 300 sqm, the exhibition deals with questions relating to security in our digital everyday life. Situations that we are all familiar with are addressed. The exhibition shows which potential dangers we are exposed to while surfing, chatting and shopping online and how these are taken up by research. Interactive exhibits allow visitors to learn the basic principles of cryptography, the production processes of a smart factory, or to get an idea of how much their own data is worth.
