Background and activities
I received my MSc from NTNU, Dept. of Telematics, in 2002, and my PhD from the same department in 2015. In my PhD project I studyed how Distribution System Operators (DSOs) in the power industry prepare for, and respond to, information security incidents in their IT and control systems. I was a research scientist at SINTEF ICT in Trondheim 2002-2015, and since 2015 I am responsible for information security for the SINTEF organization.
My scientific interests include:
- Incident management
- Risk assessments
