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 2015-2017 I was responsible for information security for the SINTEF organization. I am currently Research Director at SINTEF Digital and Head of the Software Engineering, Safety and Security department.

My scientific interests include:

  • Incident management
  • Privacy
  • Risk assessments
  • Awareness
