Centre for Cyber and Information Security (NTNU CCIS) is a national centre for research, education and competence development within the area of cyber and information security. NTNU CCIS is a public-private partnership with 29 private and public partners from industry, academia, privacy, and security. We have 100 researchers (incl. employed phd-students). Our researchers also take part in the teaching of our 800 NTNU students within these science areas in Gjøvik and Trondheim. NTNU CCIS will

  • increase Norway's cyber security capacity to meet our long-term security challenges 
  • develop cyber security competence in Norwegian agencies, companies, and academia
  • be a professional support for our government in international discussions and commitments

by bridging the information and cyber security knowledge gap in the society.

The center is supported by the Ministry of Justice and Public Security and the Ministry of Health and Care Services and is hosted and administrated by NTNUs Department of Information Security and Communication Technology (IIK). NTNU CCIS is member of the European Cyber Security Organization (ECSO).
