Institute for Security and Safety (ISS)

The Institute for Security and Safety (ISS) is located in Potsdam near Berlin, Germany. The ISS focuses on research, international education and training concepts in the areas of nuclear security and cyber security.

We believe that people make the difference as to whether or not security works. That is why we put great emphasis on training, exercises and exchange of educational experiences.

As an institute of the Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences, we are able to offer sophisticated national and international education concepts with direct links to university programs. We can also offer on and off-site training in security and safety.

Our main area of work is in the context of nuclear security – with a strong focus on cyber security. These areas are linked together by “security management”. Security management is the overall discipline which addresses many essential aspects in the field of “security”.

Most of our lecturers, researchers and trainers are also practitioners with hands-on experience and a broad understanding of how to implement security.

The ISS is a NGO in consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations since 2016.

We support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

ISS Research Project in Cooperation with the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI)

“Cyber Security at Nuclear Facilities: National Approaches”

The Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) has launched several projects to (i) understand the threat and current efforts to address the cyber-nuclear threat; (ii) identify gaps in current efforts and major challenges; and (iii) consider a path forward for addressing these challenges.

This research paper presents the results of one of those projects conducted in joint cooperation between NTI and ISS.

The purpose of this project is to understand and characterize current national approaches to cyber-nuclear security. Project contributions were made by the following ISS staff members: Prof. Friedrich Holl, Guido Gluschke, Andrea Cavina, Anna-Maria Praks and Marco Macori.

NTI-projects – Addressing Cyber-Nuclear Security Threats

The Master in Nuclear Security (MiNS) at the Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences is an innovative and unique distance learning program, which equips partici-pants with the theoretical and practical knowledge on the interconnected dynamics in the field of nuclear security. It prepares participants to use appropriate analytical tools to make thorough decisions in the various areas con-nected to nuclear security.

High-end knowledge about physical protection and cyber security for nuclear facilities, institutions and ma-terials is very rare and focused on a few geographical spots whereas people urgently seeking for it are widely spread all-over the world. Bringing the students into places where the skills reside is costly and in many cases unaffordable. Find a 3D panorama environment here for a test use (hypothetical

The threat from cyber attacks is increasingly perceived as a problem of national and interna-tional security as cyber attacks grow in numberand sophistication and as actors behind them are no longer only private hackers and organized criminals but also states.
