The mission of the System Security research group (S2G) is to ensure that systems in our society are resilient against cyber-attacks and fulfill a set of essential security (and privacy) requirements. The Systems we  focus our research on go beyond the classic ICT perspective and include examining  societal, economical and human factors.

Our research objective is to develop models, methods, techniques and tools that can be used for:

  • building secure systems
  • evaluating and assessing the security level of systems
  • enhancing the security posture of systems
  • training and educating users and organization to understand and apply systems and adversarial thinking

The research activities of our group is application oriented in nature and are conducted in different areas like secure software development lifecycle, security assurance and maturity modeling, socio-technical systems analysis, vulnerability, threat and risk analysis, DevOps security, model-driven security, and information security economics.
