Are 80 percent of all
e-mails spam?

Did I subscribe to this?

Whether it be viruses, trojans, phishing or subscription traps – threats are lurking around every corner online. Spam e-mails with harmful content are often the source. Once such an e-mail's attachments have been opened, it is often too late and the computer is infected.

The Arctic in particular is severely affected by climate change. According to the SMARTer2030 study published by the Global e-Sustainability Initiative in 2015, using information and telecommunications technologies can help prevent a global increase in CO2 emissions. That means that  CO2 emissions can be reduced by 12 billion tons by 2030 in comparison with carrying on as we are now. That is the equivalent of almost 20 percent of global emissions.

from ICT?

Children are increasingly conquering the Internet. 85 percent of twelve-year-olds in Germany are already using a smartphone "every now and then." And 20 percent of kids aged six to seven are as well.

The danger of data theft, online spying and cybercrime is growing. Only people who know what hackers do can protect themselves from them. That is why we train ten junior recruits to become cyber security professionals every year. Completely legally and certified by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IHK) . Certified hackers, so to speak.

Question 4 of 15
Is it possible to be legally trained
as a hacker?

The hacker training program

Cyber defense and security experts are hard to come by. In 2014, we decided to close this gap by offering a program to train cyber security professionals alongside their job. Participants have to place themselves in the role of a hacker and sneak their way into allegedly secure IT systems. Around 300 staff members apply to take part each year.

Possible, but no

You're right, that's nonsense.

The 2030 Agenda is a follow-up project
of Agenda 2010.

Making things happen together!

Deutsche Telekom supports the SDGs. Many of our products already contribute to sustainable development. Information and communication technology has the potential to contribute to each SDG. It can also ensure that the goals are achieved more quickly, e.g., by means of smart technologies for agriculture. Deutsche Telekom is also involved in several other initiatives such as Global Compact.
