Maria Bartnes Line

PhD Candidate

Background and activities

I received my MSc from NTNU, Dept. of Telematics, in 2002. After graduation I started as a research scientist at SINTEF ICT in Trondheim. I still hold this position part-time while pursuing my PhD at NTNU. My PhD project is called Smart Grids as Critical Infrastructures, and I am studying how Distribution System Operators (DSOs) in the power industry prepare for, and respond to, information security incidents in their IT and control systems.

My scientific interests include:

  • Incident management
  • Privacy
  • Risk assessments
  • Awareness

For more information on my PhD project, please go to my webpage at the department.
