Cybersecurity at its best! For everyone!

Lectures      

LANGUAGES

All lectures can be held either in GERMAN or ENGLISH. I have also often done simultaneous translations with preliminary talks (e.g. Japanese, Polish).

TIME

My lectures are WAKE UP lectures. They are therefore particularly suitable after the lunch break or at the end of an event. Or, of course, as the opening story of the day.

TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS

Besides a (headset) MICROPHONE, a BEAMER and MOBILE PHONE RECEPTION, I don't really need anything else. Please read the detailed technical requirements anyway, as there are a few important things to consider.


Topics      

Tobias Schrödel
LIVE HACKING 
IT security with a difference

The classic! Always renewed and expanded: the live hacking show, which has already impressed thousands of people all over the world. Tobias Schroedel gives you an entertaining look into the IT poison cabinet. There are not only a number of “Aha” experiences here, but also just as many “A-hahaha” moments.


Tobias Schrödel
INTERNET DETECTIVE  
What the internet really knows

WIf you thought a few dates didn't reveal anything, you are wrong! Unmask a scammer and return lost vacation photos to a stranger. You will be amazed at what you can find out with supposedly "unimportant information" if you only put the pieces of the puzzle together correctly.


Tobias Schrödel
THE DARKNET  
Super exciting, always legal

How do you actually get into the Darknet? If you've always wanted to take a look into the dark corners of the net, this lecture is the right one. Follow Tobias Schroedel on a foray through the dark side of the network. How do you get in and what is there actually? A different kind of online shopping - always legal, of course!


INTERNET OF THINGS 
When the hair dryer needs an update

More and more devices used in everyday life are being networked. But what about their safety? Tobias Schroedel demonstrates live, how easy (some!) smart devices can be cracked, if vendors don't care. Do we have to be afraid of lightbulbs?


BIG DATA  
See things that are not there

This lecture shows and explains what big data means for ordinary people. Schroedel demonstrates in a comprehensible way how one can infer the big picture from several inconspicuous pieces of information.


SOCIAL NETWORKS  
Connected and sold

Tobias Schroedel tells and shows in his uncomplicated and understandable way how Facebook and Co. get data that we don't even give you, how the social networks deal with it and what "delete entry" actually means.


SOCIAL ENGINEERING 
Human vulnerability

Employees can be a weak point, but they don't have to be. Witness how hackers try to gain access to data and systems through employees. This talk turns you into a living firewall. Get to know your opponents' weapons to effectively fend off data theft and CEO fraud


HEROES, HACKERS & INVENTORS   
A reading about the heroes of the digital world

How is a moon landing actually programmed? Who do you call with the first cell phone? Why was the first digital camera hidden? Tobias Schroedel introduces some heroes of the digital world from his book "It's a nerd’s world" and shows one or the other invention live. Suitable from 11 to 99 years.


HEARTBEAT TO HELL 
Beep. Beep. Beeeeeeeeeep.

Security experts found loopholes in pacemakers. What they didn't know ... the assignment wasn't about patient safety at all. Tobias Schroedel tells the story behind the scenes. A cyber crime thriller that increases your pulse, whether with or without a pacemaker. By the way, not only suitable for doctors.


SMART SOLUTION  
From corona to rain

Computer science has already solved some problems. How can the Corona warning app address the right people without knowing who they are. Why doesn't a messenger need access to the phone book and still know who is inside. How do you measure rain without a measuring device? How does encryption work? A lecture with a lot of "aaah" effect and to be told.


LIVE ON TV  
IT Security on television.

Since 2011 Tobias has been explaining the pitfalls of passwords, computers, smartphones and the Internet to sternTV viewers. Some things went wrong during the shooting. And just the funniest incidents could not always be broadcast. In this lecture, these unseen stories finally come to the screen. In addition to an interesting look behind the scenes of a live broadcast, there is a lot of laughter and learning about IT security.


HOST 
Hello and welcome!

Tobias Schroedel is “Germany's first IT comedian” - this is how the magazine CHIP once wrote. But also as a host, he will guide you through your technician conference in an amusing and competent manner. His tips, tricks and gadgets not only refresh every introduction, his in-depth technical knowledge also allows correctly asked questions and discussions at eye level with the speakers.

Tobias Schroedel

... is "Germany's first IT comedian" - as the magazine CHIP once wrote. And in fact, he explains cybersecurity and technical aspects in a way that is understandable for everyone and does not neglect the fun - regardless of whether as a live hacker, speaker or moderator for your conference.

The IT specialist was a consultant at one of the largest international service providers for information and communication technology for many years and therefore knows what he is talking about.

Schroedel is expert for the television show "stern TV" since 2011 when it comes to IT security and computers. He is currently explaining technical relationships there about once a month so that everyone can understand them.

ErmittlungsAKTE

In 2011 I was an IT expert in a great team of Ulrich Meyer’s "Investigation Files" on the hunt for criminals. In each episode, two cases that had already been closed were reproduced in great detail and the investigators' methods were shown.

I occasionally give interviews to various other magazines or news programs when something is currently happening. These were e.g. WiSo, Akten, Explosiv, wdr markt, RTL Punkt 12, SAT.1 Magazin
