More room for cybersecurity
TUM and Fraunhofer expand cybersecurity research activities in Munich
The Fraunhofer Institute for Applied and Integrated Security (AISEC) celebrated a cornerstone ceremony on October 26, 2017 for a new cybersecurity research center at the Garching campus. Established in 2008, Fraunhofer AISEC is led by two professors from the Technical University of Munich: Prof. Claudia Eckert, Chair for IT Security at the Department of Informatics, and Prof. Georg Sigl, Chair of Security in Information Technology at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The new facility will allow TUM and AISEC to further strengthen and expand upon their joint R&D activities in the field of cybersecurity. It will play a key role in the expansion of the burgeoning digital research hub in Garching.
