The first major area addressed in the new testing space is digital security. After exploring exciting live demos at their own pace, visitors will be actively integrated into product development processes and will gain in-depth insights into key aspects of the often-neglected topic of data security and related issues. The first Testlab is being run in collaboration with Munich-based ComCode and IABG, Centre Digitisation Bavaria (ZD.B), and Munich Airport’s Information Security Hub (ISH). ComCode, which specialises in digital transformation and security, is focusing its involvement in Testlab on open source intelligence (OSINT), the procurement of information from publicly accessible sources such as the internet. Travellers can ask ComCode to compile and generate a brief digital security report on their company while they wait. The key areas of interest for the smart and safe cities specialists from IABG include ways of optimising public spaces with regard to telecommunications and IT security. In a simulation, Testlab visitors will become part of a virtual safe city storage centre that brings together security information from all levels of the digital city.
Visitors to the Testlab, which is located in the Terminal 2 gate area at MUC, can also explore the digital security displays in their own time. Among the highlights are the interactive augmented reality wall, where visitors become part of an unusual but easy-to-understand demonstration on data theft. The Digital Security topics will be the focus of the LabCampus Testlab until the end of February 2020. Other new themes will follow.
