Forschungsbereiche

ATHENE begleitet die digitale Transformation von Wirtschaft, Gesellschaft und Staat aus Sicht der Cyber­sicher­heit und des Privatsphärenschutzes mit anwendungs­orientierter Spitzenforschung und Entwicklung. Die Forschung gliedert sich in Forschungsbereiche, die von Koordinator*innen geleitet werden. In den Forschungsbereichen zugeordneten Projekten werden Konzepte, Methoden und Tech­no­logien entwickelt, die Cyber­sicher­heit und Privatsphärenschutz über alle Lebensbereiche hinweg nachhaltig verbessern und sicherstellen. Die Problemstellungen werden interdisziplinär unter Einbeziehung der verschiedenen Wissenschaften, z.B. Psychologie, Arbeitswissenschaften, Wirt­schafts­wis­sen­schaf­ten etc. angegangen.
