Deckblatt Selbstbestimmt und sicher in der digitalen Welt 2015-2020 - Forschungsrahmenprogramm der Bundesregierung zur IT-Sicherheit

The German Government's research framework programme on IT security

This brochure presents the programme, its objectives and its four research focuses. These include research into new, high-tech tools and processes, together with the security of complex ICT systems with their wide-ranging dependencies and interactions. A further focus is the security of large application areas such as production, transport, medicine, and critical infrastructures, for example energy and water supply. In the context of privacy, the programme addresses the issues of how to restore public trust in the information technology employed, and the way individuals can be empowered to determine how their personal data is handled.
