The Center for Infrastructural Security is a pioneer regarding teaching and research for sustainable security management and has positioned itself as a competence center for security in the German-speaking domain. It focuses on economic, political and social structural changes brought about by digitisation and the resulting challenges in the security sector and critical infrastructures, as well as outcomes such as radicalisation, fake news or cybercrime.

The cooperation of the Center for Infrastructural Security covers not only the academic sector, but also the public and economic sectors. The center’s research-driven teaching, research results and best practices from other sectors flow directly into the development and provision of the center's training and continuing education programs.
