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 (ISS) is a scientific institute of the Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences. It 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 (ISS) provides advice, international education and training concepts, and contributes in research projects in the areas of digital, cyber, and nuclear security. We believe that people 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.

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.
