We connect technology, people, information, and processes to enable assured operations.
Cybersecurity is a computing-based discipline involving technology, people, information, and processes to enable assured operations. It involves the creation, operation, analysis, and testing of secure computer systems. It is an interdisciplinary field combining technical aspects with law, policy, human factors, ethics, and risk management in the context of adversaries [JTF].
Cybersecurity laboratory (CYBERSEC) connects the theory with practice, focusing on educating future security professionals. The research activities are performed in KYPO Cyber Range Platform – a state of the art scientific computing facility for cybersecurity research and education.
