Presentation and Awards | Game Jam: Unveil the privacy threat

On 7 and 8 October 2017 we run a Game Jam to explore solutions for new challenges of the concepts behind trending topics such as smart city, privacy and security. Together with game designers and experts in the field of privacy and security we will develop game concepts to simplify and innovate the methods of employee training for data-driven companies. The unique form of the event promises a comprehensive, intuitive and creative approach in teaching complex matter.

The starting point for the jammers: How do we build smart cities in a privacy and security-friendly way, when more and more movements and human actions are tracked by public wifi and camera systems? How to develop the right infrastructure? How to sensitise employees handling risky data in businesses? In more general words, how to combine state-of-the-art privacy and security and creative thinking? In order to explore answers to these questions the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society is organising a 2-day event for game designers and experts in the field of privacy and security. Join us to see the results, share your ideas and make new contacts.

This high-profile lecture series thrives to develop a European perspective on the processes of transformation that our societies are currently undergoing.


Once a month we publicly discuss the impact of digitalisation on the society. Therefore we invite special guests and engage in a dialogue with the audience.
