Simulation of potential security gaps to learn from attackers and their methods.

Classical security measures can counteract a variety of safety hazards only to a limited extend. With HoneySens a system was developed to be able to react effectively to this menace situation. It allows an automated recognition of attacks to initiate counter-measures in real-time.

Digital ready ‑ Legal standards for municipalities


Customer-friendly electronic services in the administration frequently fail due to obsolete legal norms which do not correspond to the digital setup. This includes the perceived need for written documentation, the principal "once only", provisioning of evidence and the handling of electronic identities. Even fully automated administrative processes are not yet the rule and are not covered by current administrative procedural law. What we need is a legal framework which eliminates the requirement for evidence aligned to the use of paper. Instead, it should define adapted provisions for data processing in a digital world and allow for fully automated processes.

Future security with convergents and hyperconvergents platforms

  • How to react to fast and faster innovation cycles?
  • How to reduce the increasing complexity?
  • How to get infrastructures similar to cloud also in the public sector?

Ready for the digital terra incognita?

Digital transformation projects with a high priority, high mobility and high demands of speed are often difficult to implement with the established
best-practices of traditional IT-Development- and
IT-Operating organisations. Taking the example of the relaunch of the internet offers
of the Federal Employment Agency, it will be shown, which changes in an IT organisation are necessary to successfully implement contemporary online applications with the help of modern methods, processes, architectures and technologies.

Does digitization stand on clay feet in the public sector?

Digitization in the public sector is coming – so far all experts agree. However, it generallyexists for
the right base in the form of sustainable IT draughts? Where are approaches of the IT department not quite sustainable typically and where? Where there lie the big stumbling blocks and how can we handle it? How prevents a German version of Edward Snowden? Big questions in this „Best of all Practise session“ - answers given from the point of view of an adviser and concrete possibilities for Improvement are indicated.

Foreign Service Digitization


The Federal Foreign Office pursues the further development of digitisation of processes and interactions by a multitude of projects. In the context of an extensive transformation programme, a digitisation strategy is currently being developed. For this purpose, agile and innovative tools like e.g. User Journeys of the Design Thinking approach are used to identify and consolidate the strategical digitisation needs of the Federal Foreign Office at home and abroad. Furthermore, suitable structures for a regular exchange are being installed - in the case of the Federal Foreign Office e.g. a "Digital Lab". This is being done for topics of e-government, digital administration and digital diplomacy.

Cloud computing in public administration

Smart Cities, people-oriented services and Data exchange of the public authorities in eGovernment are just some of the keywords of the Digitalisation of public adminsitration.

Data security at the home office – How to?


The regulations  for a teleworking job currently require  technically complex measures for a safe connection with the IT of the main department. Due to the costs, implementation is limited. The demands such as reconcilability of family and working life and faster integration of managers in crises situations outside working hours are increasing. Which solutions does the current technology offer for a continuing fulfilment of demand?

Digital agenda for administration: What does Europe do and how can German institutions accelerate digitalisation?

How can the industry standard for Enterprise Content Management be adapted to the requirements set by the Agenda 2020 (the agenda sets goals to increase Germany‘s competitiveness) to proceed from paper-based file to electronic file and thus help digitalise processes and set prerequisites for a network of administration services independent of time and locality?

Digitally Leadership

Transformation by digital technology - How can the digital transformation be managed successfully?

The lion's den – Startups, which want to make public adminsitration easier and cooler

Cloud-Services, Gamification, Daten-Virtualisation and Apps- that is what citizens expect from public administration.Not only the coolness-factor is here important. The easy and playful interaction with IT, which the citizens are used to with their smart phones and tablets, will be the main focus and the aim is to also open up new possibilites for the staff of public authorities.
In this Best-Practice-Dialog we want to give start-ups space for their ideas for improving public administration and to talk with them about their innovations, business cases and structural desires from a digital, smart and innovative state. und mit ihnen über ihre Innovationen, Business Cases und strukturellen Wünsche an einen digitalen, smarten und innovativen Staat sprechen.

Scan instead of paper - Legal security for the electronic file

Fully-fledged governance modernistation is not possible without electronic files and electronic processes. The technical guideline for secure scanning which was published by the Federal Office for Information Security raises a lot of questions upon implementation in the municipalities. Vitako has compiled a sample process description for typical municipal scan settings. At the same time, the Municipal Association for Administration Management created an analysis for protection demands for municipal documents. The results which are presented in this dialogue are an important step forward to the introduction of the electronic file suitable for daily use and fulfilling all legal requirements.


User centralised Design: The example of the new internet platform of the Federal Employment Agency


According to the principle "ready in 3 clicks", the internet platform of the Federal Employment Agency was optimised in an open innovation process aiming at the requirements of the user. This resulted in a better user experience. The Best-Practice Dialogue will introduce the procedure in detail.
