Hessian Ministry of the Interior and Sports is the first supporting member of CAST e.V.

The digitization of the economy and society is progressing unstoppably. A disruptive development, combined with a wide range of possibilities and digital transformations from citizen services to autonomous systems. At the same time, the risks are growing with these changes, as WannaCry, Doxxing or Emotet cyber attacks clearly demonstrate.

"Security in cyberspace and, of course, in digitization as a whole are thus an integral part of services of general interest and tasks of internal security," says Hesse's Minister of the Interior Peter Beuth, "high operational cyber security competencies are increasingly indispensable for our future and all areas of the state and society."

One of the most important contact and further training organizations for IT security in the German-speaking world is the non-profit association Competence Center for Applied Security Technology (CAST e.V.), based in Darmstadt.
