 Central aim of organisation
Safety & Security Department implements cutting-edge research in safety & security critical areas of information and communication technologies (ICT)

 Briefly describe your organisation
The AIT Austrian Institute of Technology is Austria’s largest non-universitary research organization with five departments.
The AIT Safety & Security Department focuses on these two important aspects of ever-increasing relevance for today’s citizens, which will also take centre stage in the information society of tomorrow.
‘Safety’ is in our case related to technologies and refers to the personal safety of individuals, which is directly or indirectly dependent on the proper functioning or availability of an information processing and/or autonomous system.
‘Security’ rather refers to the protection of information and the prevention of any potential violation through unauthorized access to or alteration of personal information. Security may also refer to classical security techniques (surveillance) that are supported by information technology.
Research areas are Future Networks and Services, Intelligent Video Systems and Highly Reliable Software and Systems
Staff of 200 (150 employees) in our department at the locations Tech Gate Vienna, Seibersdorf, Graz, Hall i.T. and Klagenfurt create innovative IT-solutions.
