Speaker Profiles

(in the order of the presentations)

Mr Martin Frost

Martin Frost was one of the co-operators of the darknet marketplace “Wallstreet Market”.

However, he decided to go public and bring light into the darkness, among other things with his gripping book: “Out of the Dark: The true story behind one of the largest darknet marketplaces in the world: WallStreet Market”.

Today, he is actively involved in the education and prevention of cybercrime, explains how cybercriminals work, and gives advice to companies and private individuals on how to protect themselves.

Martin Forst is the founder of the AI Institute, which specialises in the areas of artificial intelligence (AI), ChatGPT and automation with AI. The AI Institute offers a variety of video courses around these topics, which help both beginners and advanced users to expand their knowledge and develop practical skills. In addition, the AI Institute organises regular expert calls where participants have the opportunity to interact directly with leading experts in the field of AI and ask their questions.

Prof. Dr. Dirk Heckmann

Prof. Dr. Dirk Heckmann is a renowned constitutional judge and internet law professor who combines tradition and modernity in a unique way in Germany.

Since 1996, Prof. Heckmann taught IT law at the University of Passau before being appointed to the newly established Chair of Digitalisation Law and Security at the Technical University of Munich in 2019. There he also founded the TUM Center for Digital Public Services (CDPS), a scientific institution of the TUM School of Social Sciences and Technology since February 2023. In addition, Prof. Heckmann has been a part-time constitutional judge at the Bavarian Constitutional Court since 2003. He was appointed to the expert group of the German Chancellor’s National IT Summit in 2007, and in 2018 he became a member of the Federal Government’s Data Ethics Commission

Prof. Heckmann’s teaching, research and consulting focuses on the current and often still little-researched legal issues of digitalisation in the health sector, in education and in the judiciary and administration. In particular, he deals with data protection, IT security, the use of artificial intelligence (machine learning) and other innovations. The “juris Praxiskommentar Internetrecht” (6th edition 2021, 2,800 pages), which he edited, is considered the standard work on the law of digitalisation in Germany.

Prof. Dirk Heckmann is a sought-after interview partner in the media and has appeared in various programmes such as ZDF Heute, ZDF Donnerstalk, ZDF Wiso, RTL Nachtjournal and ARD Alpha. Bayerischer Rundfunk and ARD Alpha have dedicated their own programmes to him.
