Cyber Security

Cyber security and physical security are increasingly intertwined, as the society operates largely with the help of the cyber world. Bits are involved in the way that we study, work, engage in politics, do business, and deal with the security of citizens.

Cyber security is a topical problem that touches all parts of the society. Secure systems design is
both a requirement and an enabler for the digitalization of products and services. Aalto University
teaches and conducts research on a wide range of technical and societal topics in the field of
cyber security.
