Web TV series “Dr. Security” wins science communication award

Two of our CISPA PhD students Stefan Nürnberger and Gordon Bolduan created, produced and published a Web TV series on IT security. The researchers centred their three episode story around the fictional IT security researcher “Dr. Security”, who tackles problems ranging from global botnets to latest research on malicious USB devices. They also received very prominent support for their project: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has a remarkable cameo in the second episode.

On December 2nd they were awarded for their outstanding science communication by the German Secretary of Education Johanna Wanka. Congratulations!

You can watch all episodes (in German) and the Making of on the Dr. Security Website .
