The Cyber Security Arena @ UU/IT
Facilitating research collaborations between divisions and between the department of Information technology and external parts.
About The Cyber Security Arena @ IT/UU
Security is a broad area with many different meanings. One view is that security is about protecting people, places, strategic sites and society's vital functions against for example terrorism, organised crime, and natural disasters. Cyber Security (CS) or Computer Security is aimed at protecting digital infrastructure against (malicious) disruption of the service as provided. This website (arena) collects relevant activities at the Department of Information Technology of Uppsala University.
Research and Education
