Even our website normally is in German, due to the content English is required here

This is a non-commercial project. Please share and boost the link wherever you fell it helps the project.

This is a short notice that there are ongoing efforts to build up a IT security and support team which is willing to help all operators of critical infrastructure for free.

Currently we try to get all of these experts together on decentralized, free, secure and Open Source Messenger Riot.

Experts please join us!

If you are system, software or security expert please join us too. We are 100% sure that all of these fast installed home office workplaces will destroy hundreds of servers and infrastructures and also some real attacks on infrastructure will happen. Furthermore all of these setup errors will come up now. We need you to build up a great team.

Infrastructure operators join us

If you operate critical infrastructure and run into problems feel free to join the Riot room too.

We cannot afford to loose critical infrastructure

I know its pretty early and situation will become more bad in 2 or 3 weeks. Assume a 6-8 week duration based on the actual facts. But setting up things now gives us the chance to help after they lost most of their stuff because of infection or other problems.

If you are infrastructure operator you are free to already join to be connected if you need help.

We all want that there is no need for our offer, but one has to be prepared.

Let me take the opportunity to wish you and your families health, protection all the best for the upcoming hard weeks. A lot of you will be affected in business and maybe in private life, but there will be a strong coming back after Corona time is passed by. Help others if they are in problems to give them a chance to survive private and economic problems. Work together, communicate and spread the idea. Be sure, there is a time after it.

Even we are slowed down by the restrictions currently, we are full available via Riot and Briar Greetings and best wishes!

Karl
