Welcome to the website of the Chair of Information Security and Compliance

The chair concentrates on aspects of strategic IT management with a particular focus on questions related to information security and information security management. The research focus lies on organizational capabilities that are necessary to secure information and IT. The course offerings focus on modern approaches for managing ‘the IT’ and issues related to information security. In particular, students will be enabled to understand, evaluate and design effective organizational structures and governance mechanisms that handle contemporary challenges of IT management. All courses impart highly relevant practical knowledge on well-established standards (such as ITIL, TOGAF, ISO 2700x) and up-to-date management approaches. However, all courses aim at giving you tools to conduct your own piece of research.
