Cybersecurity

With critical infrastructure becoming increasingly networked and the number of networked sensors and other objects of everyday use in the Internet of Things growing rapidly, the security of the devices and networks involved is of crucial importance. Security issues around Bring-Your-Own-Device have furthered the importance of cybersecurity in recent years. The cybersecurity project aims to tackle this complex topic in an interdisciplinary and international manner, focusing primarily on computer science and legal questions.

In particular, the project explores the important, both mutually beneficial and conflict-prone relationship between cybersecurity and privacy. State-of-the-art cybersecurity protection often relies on the collection and analysis of large and ever increasing amounts of data. In order to detect anomalies, measures like deep packet inspection are used. At the same time, new regulation demands sharing that data with other companies and with governments in order to prevent cyber threats. In this context, the project aims to find common ground for regulating cybersecurity issues that benefit all stakeholders and are also privacy- and data protection-friendly.
