Cyber Cni team

The Institut Mines-Télécom is currently France’s n°1 group of Graduate Engineering and Management Schools. It is also unique in working on the development of the full range of ICT system security techniques, via its Thematic Network N°5. This covers not only systems and architectures, but also security policies and risk management. In addition, it addresses all the legal, economic and social issues related to cybersecurity, developing comprehensive security solutions tailored to suit each business or organisation according to their specific needs and challenges. It focuses in particular on research areas such as encryption, quantum data, communication infrastructures, mobility and security, the Internet of Things, embedded systems, cloud computing and social networks. Some members of the RT5 network also regularly contribute to the Cyber CNI Chair.
