Welcome to the KIT Graduate School CyberSecurity

In many areas of information technology and for modern societies in general, cyber security is of the utmost importance. In a highly digitalized world with highly digitalized economies, protection against cyber-attacks is essential. In recent years, newspapers have been littered with reports on devastating cyber-attacks on individuals, businesses, hospitals, local administrations, and government institutions. More than anything else, these events illustrate that demand for expertise in the field of cyber security is high.

The KIT Graduate School CyberSecurity has set itself the goal of providing doctoral students with state-of-the-art technical and generic competences, enabling them to respond quickly and effectively to present and future security challenges. As a nexus in a multifaceted field, the school brings together the various different security disciplines at KIT. It will organize recurring networking events and will serve as a platform for interdisciplinary work and the exchange of ideas among graduate, post-doctoral and leading researchers.
