The first Testlab is in collaboration with the following companies: ComCode and IABG, two renowned security companies from the Munich area, Center Digitization Bavaria (ZD.B) and Munich Airport's Information Security Hub (ISH).
For ComCode, which specializes in the digital transformation and security, the focus of its involvement in Testlab is open source intelligence (OSINT). This refers to the procurement of information from publicly accessible sources such as the internet. Travelers can ask ComCode to compile and generate a brief digital security report on their company while they wait. In addition, all visitors are eligible to enter a draw, with the winner receiving a more detailed analysis, including a presentation of the results and suggestions for improved digital security.
The key areas of interest for the "Smart & Safe Cities" specialists from IABG include ways of optimizing public spaces with regard to telecommunications and IT security. In a simulation, Testlab visitors will become part of a virtual safe city storage center that brings together (security) information from all levels of the digital city.
