Our Vision

Cyber security must know no borders. We need worldwide collaboration and cooperation in order to defend institutions, governments, and organizations against cyber-crimes.

About us

The Institute for Security and Safety was founded in 2012 with the aim of carrying out international competence and capacity building in the context of cyber security in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna.

Nowadays, the Institute for Security and Safety provides advice, international education and training concepts, and contributes in research projects in the areas of digital, cyber, and nuclear security. We believe that it is the people who make the difference as to whether or not security works. That is why we put great emphasis on capacity building, collaboration, and sharing experiences worldwide.

Mannheim University of Applied Sciences (UAS)

Since March 2023, the Institute for Security and Safety is an affiliated institute of the Mannheim University of Applied Sciences. As an independent affiliated institute, the new cooperation is intended to foster the exchange of ideas in the areas of cyber security, digital security, physical security, automotive security and nuclear security and to promote practical skills. We will support UAS Mannheim in research and education and share our hands-on and industry expertise in cyber security with the student body and faculty.

In Memoriam:

Guido Gluschke 1965-2021

It is with deep sadness that we inform you that Guido Gluschke - founder and director of Institute for Security and Safety - passed away in August 2021 at the age of 56. With him, we not only lose a highly esteemed supervisor and colleague, whom we will miss with his open and friendly attitude, but also a highly respected expert and visionary, with an inexhaustible knowledge in the field of cyber security. We will do our utmost to continue his work and ideas and carry them forward in his spirit. He was a role model and friend for many who crossed his path. We will therefore continue and advance all collaborations and visions for more cybersecurity worldwide.
