Presentation and goals

The global economic impact of losses due to cybercrime amounts to hundreds of billions of euros per year ($445 billion according to the McAfee/CSIS study of 2014) with a strong increase in attacks, especially for identity theft and digital data theft, as well as malicious attacks.

Protection against these vulnerabilities includes :

  • Robustness to cyber attacks of sensitive infrastructure (e.g. stuxnet)
  • Robustness of security components against software vulnerabilities and data leaks (e.g. heartbleed)
  • Protection of privacy and security of cloud infrastructure
  • Robust design and evaluation of safety components
  • Fault detection in protocols or software and hardware components

The topics covered in the training cover the complementary areas of Cybersecurity, including cryptology, forensics, and privacy, in particular for embedded systems and distributed architecture.

The objective of this program is to train cybersecurity experts (including data privacy aspects) with a bac + 5 degree, able to evolve immediately in an industrial environment and who can also pursue a thesis.
