March time is CeBIT time? This used to be the case, but now the world’s largest computer trade fair has moved from spring to June. Nevertheless, many IT security experts are heading to Hanover this March – for the SecIT, which will take place on 6 and 7 March 2018 in the local Congress Center. Not only the name of SecIT indicates that the organizer – Heise Verlag, which publishes, among others, the journals c’t and iX – wants to address an audience that is usually encountered at CeBIT (especially in the IT Security hall). cryptovision’s Klaus Schmeh will be represented in the top-class field of speakers chosen by Heise journalists with talk about “Digital Certificates in the Internet of Things”. Klaus Schmeh has not only been writing for c’t and iX for 20 years, but is also well known for his extraordinary presentation style, which includes self-drawn cartoons and Lego models. We are sure: if you visit the SecIT, you will not miss the CeBIT.
