IT Security at TU Clausthal

IT security is becoming increasingly important and is penetrating ever wider circles of our daily lives. However, it stands and falls with the behaviour of the users of IT systems. In order to provide support here, the employees of the computer centre are available to provide advice and, if necessary, action. In addition, the Executive Board of Clausthal University of Technology has set up an IT Security Working Group and adopted an IT Security Policy.

The acting IT security officer of the TU Clausthal is:

Prof. Dr. RĂ¼diger Ehlers

Institute for Software and Systems Engineering
Building C10, Room 217
Arnold-Sommerfeld-Str. 1

Basic tips and information are available in the data center documentation on IT security. For those who are interested in the state of IT security in the country in general, we would be pleased to refer to the current IT Security in Germany management report of the Federal Office for Information Security.


The RZ offers training courses on IT security - please ask for an appointment by e-mail. Depending on the frequency of incoming inquiries or the desire to inform a lot of employees in a facility about IT security at once, we will then set an event date.
