ICSP researches, communicates and transfers approaches, technologies and solutions to promote security and privacy in the new digital reality. In doing so, ICSP takes a multi-faceted, technically and organisationally holistic and interdisciplinary multi-perspective view of the field. The institute's goal is to help shape national, European and international research in the long term, as well as to impart the available know-how in the training of highly-qualified Bachelor's and Master's graduates and to transfer it to industry and administration via cooperations and spin-offs.
Cyber Security & Cyber Privacy are both cross-sectional disciplines that are already of immense importance for the economy, administration and society in a ubiquitously digitalised and interconnected reality of life - especially against the backdrop of constantly increasing threats and criminal acts from the network. The ICSP bundles the activities that are vital for the prevention, detection and response to security incidents from a technical and organisational perspective in research, development and teaching.
