How to fight security threats?

Learning outcomes of the CHAISE curriculum

The Information Security research group is within the Software Engineering & Information Systems chair (Institute of Computer Science, University of Tartu). The group conducts research and teaching in the field of information security with an emphasis on secure system design and requirements engineering. The group is performing research in the fields of information system security risk management, personal data management, and privacy leakage management. The main research areas include (but not limited to) secure business process management, model-driven security, security risk management in the blockchain applications, privacy management in the intelligent transportation systems and blockchain-based applications, secure and private data analysis, and visualization for the privacy and security by design systems.
