The goal of the ZISC center is bringing together academia and industry to carry out research and education in information security.
The transformation to an information society is underway. While it is difficult to predict how it will evolve, the trajectory is clear: the future will bring an increased reliance on networked information systems with the associated security risks. Whether we can counter these risks or not depends on our commitment to expanding our science base in information security. There is a large pool of information security talent in Zurich, and the time is ripe for a coordinated effort!
