Who we are

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 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.

Our Vision

Cyber threats know no borders. Thus, cyber security must know no borders, too. We need worldwide collaboration and cooperation in order to defend institutions, governments, and organizations against cyber-crimes. Being a leading institute for international capacity building, education, and security management in the areas of digital and cyber security in critical infrastructures, the automotive sector, and the industry 4.0, we provide advice, promote international capacity building, and contribute to research projects worldwide
