How can the Netherlands’ automated storm surge barrier be secured from malicious hackers? How do companies comply with security standards online? Why is it that some Internet Service Providers are attacked more often than others? How to solve the attribution problem? How can organizations implement effective and usable security for their systems and data bases? Can we share information securely over the network? How to leverage data analytics on big data sets for improving security and while maintaining privacy? Can we use quantum computing for encryption and even make it quantum-proof?

At Delft University of Technology, a community of researchers work together to address these and other cybersecurity challenges. Engineers, computer scientists, philosophers, social scientists and economists jointly address a wide array of challenges from different angles with a wide range of skill sets. Our researchers aim to improve technical computer security, cryptography, economic security measures, infrastructure security and security strategy, policy and governance.

We are convinced that a one-dimensional approach to cybersecurity fails to live up to the complexity of security challenges posed by today’s interconnected socio-technical systems. Instead, we believe a combination of knowledge from different fields is needed providing a holistic view on cybersecurity. This multidisciplinary and holistic view has proven to generate creative, innovative and unconventional security solutions, making CyberSecurity@TUDelft a unique place to learn about and research cybersecurity.
