Cybersecurity Research

research for a
cybersecure world

Advancing cybersecurity knowledge and improving the cyber resilience across borders and sectors

Cybersecurity is not just a technological challenge – it affects individuals, businesses and countries. Its effectiveness, or lack thereof, has economic, societal, political and security implications. Our team provides cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary research and innovation in cybersecurity to a wide variety of institutions and organisations. Our socio-economic impact assessments, threat and cybersecurity market analyses, and our insights into European Union cybersecurity certification schemes contribute to the development of new standards and policies for policymakers and decisionmakers.
