Cyber security VSB - Technical University of Ostrava

Cyber Security research group

We would like to inform you that the VŠB cyber security group has started to organize security training for the public and companies.

S radostí bychom vám chtěli oznámit, že skupina počítačové bezpečnosti VŠB začala organizovat bezpečnostní školení pro veřejnost a firmy.

Cybersecurity is at VSB-TUO addressed at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (FEECS), maily by the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Telecommunications. The departments are active in both research and education. In the education area, there is a master level of study programme accredited in Czech and English and several graduate students pursuing the Ph.D. degree in topics relevant for cybersecurity. In the field of cybersecurity research, the focus is put on computer malware and related topics, hacking prevention and protection, and penetration testing. The members of the research team are representatives of the Czech Republic in the COST Action 17124 Digital Forensics: Evidence Analysis via Intelligent Systems and Practices (DigForASP).
