Security, Trust and Privacy for People and Organisations

Our group takes the perspective of the user and the decision-maker, and asks the questions: how can we run IT, make decisions about IT, and implement IT such that the business is secured but efficient and people feel safe but can be productive.

We provide new, scalable technologies and methodologies in pursue of the holy grail: make deicions, operate and optimise information systems for the proven good of an organisation without any human intervention. That will never succeed completely, but it poses us interesting research targets. Our research is based on sound foundations in systems research. Our research is heavy on quantification, combining system measurement with mathematical modelling and system implementation. We build software and systems, apply math, and invent algorithms and architectures.
