Cyber Security

An increasing number of states are consolidating national cyber defense capabilities into specialized, often militarized units. Meanwhile, irregular and terrorist organizations are moving to cyberspace as avenue through which to launch attacks on institutions, businesses and communities around the world. Moreover, private sector entities, as repositories of strategic or valuable information, often bear the brunt of hostile digital activity. However, with cyber conflict escalating, institutions are developing defensive capabilities, utilizing their accumulated technological know-how to prevent and tackle digital threats.

Cyber security research at ISDP works to identify information security concerns on the policy level, as well as to contribute to institutions developing necessary resources and skills for the implementation of a collective response. ISDP aims at explore tools, strategies, and institutions that can help state and non-state actors to understand and effectively deal with security threats related to cyberspace.
