As our society becomes increasingly interconnected, the vulnerability to abuse of digital technology grows. To improve our understanding of the nature of the cyber threat to national security and of the technical, organisational and institutional means to address it responsibly, the Dutch General Intelligence and Security Service (AIVD) and Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) initiate a collaborative research programme.
In this programme, an interdisciplinary team of a post-doc, four PhD candidates and senior researchers at TU Delft's faculty of Technology, Policy and Management will study scientific research questions on cybersecurity in a public governance context using a combination of methods from computer engineering and social science. Research themes include identifying and understanding cyber threats, new instruments for measuring the security level of critical networks and for recognizing attacker behavior, and questions related to organisation, collaboration and governance.
