In the project “ISALIP – Information Security Awareness, Literacy, and Privacy” the BF/M-Bayreuth – together with the e-Campusverein Lausitz (Cottbus, Germany) and the Mykolo Romerio Universitetas (Vilnius, Lithuania) – is working on an inventory of European standards and the resulting demands on staff in the area of information security.

Through the ISALIP project, European citizens will be better prepared for the digital age. Individual awareness of information security should be strengthened as well as related competencies and risk management in professional and private contexts. The networking of experts from the partner countries and also in general on the European level is to be accelerated.

As a part of the project, sub-goals will be pursued to improve protection of digital identity, a central consideration of the General Data Protection Regulation.

On the one hand, the network formation is intended to contextualize the existing discussions on identity in the field of information security and ensure transnational exchange between practitioners and decision-makers from practice, research and the specific regions.

On the other hand, the project group builds on the work of the previous ERASMUS+ project “TeBeISi – Partial Certification in Vocational Education and Training” to initiate a discussion within the network of expert on good security practices and benefits for the training of citizens in general education, vocational training and higher education. In particular, the proposed combination of higher education and work-based learning will be critically analyzed.

Finally, ISALIP is intended to support the dissemination and awareness of the importance of information security to citizens and employees alike. The ISALIP results shall thus prepare the ground for a larger application in the field of “Smart Citizen” and the acquisition of digital skills.

The project will carry out three activities:

  1. Analysis and easy-to-understand consolidation of information security frameworks, regulations and actors in the project partner countries, which are relevant to SMEs and citizens.
  2. Execute lead-user-workshops with experts from the DACH region and the Baltics to discuss the experiences and lessons learned from activity 1 in the context of vocational education and training and to identify best practices.
  3. Design of a curriculum concept based on the integration of practical users regarding existing data literacy, information security measures and identified weak points.
  4. Dissemination of the project results in the project partner countries.
