Welcome to the KIT Graduate School Cyber Security

In virtually all areas of information technology today, cyber security is of the utmost importance. In a highly digitalized world with highly digitalized economies, protection against increasingly dangerous cyber attacks is crucial. In recent years, the news have been littered with reports on attacks on individuals, businesses, hospitals, local administrations, government institutions, and critical infrastructures. These events illustrate that demand for cutting-edge expertise in cyber security is at an all-time high.

The KIT Graduate School Cyber Security provides doctoral researchers with state-of-the-art technical, scientific, and interdisciplinary skills, enabling them to respond effectively to present and future security challenges. As a nexus in a multifaceted field, the school brings together the different security disciplines at KIT. It organizes regular networking events and serves as a platform for interdisciplinary work and the exchange of ideas among doctoral, post-doctoral, and senior researchers.
