Student Project – Audit Framework


In 2021, ERNW collaborated with Hochschule Mannheim for their CEP (Cyber Security Entwicklungsprojekt) to build an auditing framework for testing operating system configurations against security procedures.

How they got to meet a speaker whose work they’d read about in class. How people felt even more a part of the community they were studying hard to belong to.  Continue reading “TROOPERS for Students!”
