The first Terminal Testlab has opened at Munich Airport, part of the LabCampus innovation center currently under construction.
With the Testlab, situated at the heart of the airport terminal, LabCampus is creating opportunities for customers to present their new products and solutions to tens of thousands of travelers every day while conducting live testing. 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 ComCode and IABG (two well-known security companies from the Munich area), Center Digitization Bavaria (ZD.B) and Munich Airport’s Information Security Hub (ISH).
ComCode, which specializes 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. Travelers can ask ComCode to compile and generate a brief digital security report on their company while they wait. In addition, all visitors are eligible to enter a draw, with the winner receiving a more detailed analysis, including presentation of the results and suggestions for improved digital security.
The key areas of interest for the smart and safe cities specialists from IABG include ways of optimizing public spaces with regard to telecommunications and IT security. In a simulation, Testlab visitors will become part of a virtual safe city storage center 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 (Schengen level 04) 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.
