BONN, Germany -- The threat from the Internet continues to grow: Some 200,000 new versions of viruses, trojans and worms now appear every day. As such, preventive cyber security grows more and more important and transparency over the current risk situation is crucial. Deutsche Telekom is therefore launching the online portal www.sicherheitstacho.eu, which will be unveiled to the public for the first time at CeBIT in Hanover. "New cyber attacks on companies and institutions are found every day. Deutsche Telekom alone records up to 450,000 attacks per day on its honeypot systems and the number is rising. We need greater transparency about the threat situation. With its security radar, Deutsche Telekom is helping to achieve this," said Thomas Kremer, Board Member responsible for Data Privacy, Legal Affairs and Compliance. The website has a digital map of the world which shows the origin of cyber attacks recorded around the clock by more than 90 sensors. A real-time ticker reports which targets they are setting their sights on. In addition, statistics show the current most common forms of attack and the countries in which the most active attack servers are located. However, their location is not necessarily also the country of origin of the attackers. "Most attacks are automated," explained Kremer. "Figuratively speaking, the attackers shoot into the network with a shotgun to work out where the weaknesses in the systems are." The new Deutsche Telekom portal is freely available to security experts and interested parties. The company shares its findings with authorities and manufacturers of protection software. Deutsche Telekom uses the information itself to keep the protection of its own systems up to date and to warn customers when specific threats arise. For example, Deutsche Telekom sends out several tens of thousands of information letters each month to customers, whose lines are misused to send out SPAM, with the aim of limiting the dissemination of malware such as viruses, worms and trojans.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
