Charter of Trust’s SGS and TU Graz open cybersecurity research center
The Charter of Trust is delighted to share the news that its Partner SGS and its Associated Partner Graz University of Technology announced the opening of Lamarr Security Research, a non-profit and independent cybersecurity research center.
Lamarr Security Research will become the heart of the international Cybersecurity Campus Graz, opened by SGS and TU Graz in 2019, and sets a new milestone in the strong partnership between both institutions. The center is named after Austrian-born Hollywood actress and inventor Hedy Lamarr, who inspired the world with her curiosity for novel technologies, and who pioneered the invention of secure systems.
As a cybersecurity research and development hub, Lamarr Security Research is going to make its results available to all, fostering open research and bringing value to society. SGS will be responsible for Lamarr’s business and administrative management and contribute SGS’s expertise in testing and verification. TU Graz will spearhead Lamarr’s research program with its experience in cutting-edge cybersecurity research. Thanks to this partnership and Lamarr’s plans to closely collaborate with start-ups and businesses, the research center will be an accelerator for transferring academic research results to industry products and services.
In an information society where computer systems influence almost all parts of everyday life, and where cybersecurity threats are increasing, security and privacy protection are some of the highest goods. SGS and TU Graz share the vision that innovation, privacy, and transpareny can only be achieved together through the highest standards in independent research, testing, and verification. With their joint effort, both partners respond to current challenges in cybersecurity, and reaffirm their commitment to create trust in digital technologies – the founding principle of the Charter of Trust.
