RISE Centre for Cybersecurity

We hardly pass any day without hearing of a new cyber-attack. This is primarily due to the fact that more and more information systems are being connected to the public Internet without employing sustainable security. The importance of strong cybersecurity does not need a justification anymore and is inevitable for any, directly and indirectly, Internet-connected device or network.

Although we can rely on available generic tools, techniques and guidelines that are applicable across multiple domains, the individual application areas have specific constraints and cybersecurity needs; for example, the Mobility area is more focused on automotive that has different security needs than the Life Science area that is more focused on e-Health.  

In addition to the application ares constraints and needs, the paramount importance of cybersecurity is strongly stressed by Swedish industry and Swedish government.  Most Swedish industries, especially the ones in the area of critical infrastructures (energy grids, water systems, communication systems, transportation systems) are highly susceptible to cyber-attacks and need cybersecurity overhauls. Especially in these critical systems, a cybersecurity breach has also safety implications on top of negative impacts on business. This further enhances the importance of strong cybersecurity that in turn needs strong in-house cybersecurity skills in Sweden.

Currently, RISE is involved in a number of IT security activities, which include hardcore technical work
as well as security testing, risk management and social aspects of cybersecurity. Furthermore, different
RISE divisions are involved in different sectors (automotive, telecom, security, etc.). As we now put all these skills together in a coordinated way, RISE is most certainly the strongest cybersecurity player in Sweden and among the top ones internationally. This has enabled an opportunity to formulate attractive offers to the industry and public sector, and established RISE as a stronger speaking partner!

We have strong compeence in the area of:

  • Information secuity
  • Cybersecurity
  • Cloud security
  • IoT security
  • Security for critical infrastructure
  • Network seccurity
  • Security Architecture
  • Platform security
  • SW security
  • Privacy
