Content Description

New business models, fast innovation cycles, and technologies including cloud computing, big data, and the Internet of Things, as well as changing user behavior due to social networks and mobile devices, bring new challenges for ICT security. Malware, access to sensitive information, and highly specialized cyberattacks are only some of the dangers we face. For these reasons, security and safety, reliability, and the legal security of systems have become key subjects for research and development (R&D).

To cope with security challenges and requirements, the "BEST-AT" study is developing a comprehensive technology roadmap for Austria. It formulates strong research questions and recommends future R&D projects to achieve the best possible ICT security.
