Digital Security (DiSec), pronounced ‘dissect’ i.e. to analyze in minute detail, focusses on all aspects of security & privacy. DiSec is organically structured such that members from vastly different disciplines have a real reason to belong by collaborating on common transdisciplinary research directions and funded projects. Our main research domains encompass defence, survival, situational awareness and warfare. Current expertise includes machine learning, biometrics, cryptography, economics, mathematics, material physics, bioinformatics and consumer behaviour.

Defence, Warfare, Survival

UNIQUENESS

DiSec cohesively blends the various discipline expertise of its members towards solving society-impacting security problems
