Scientists at BGU’s Homeland Security Institute are developing autonomous vehicles for air, land and sea, keeping people out of harm’s way. They’re building resilient structures that withstand rockets, artillery shells and earthquakes. New remote sensing technologies are being used for anomaly and target detection, and protection of infrastructure and borders. A micro-satellite is being designed and launched into space. Sensors are being developed to identify bio and chemical contaminants, and measures are being taken to safeguard water supplies. BGU’s emergency response team is prepared to minimize the impact in the event of a tragedy, and cyber scientists are keeping “virtual” borders safe.
BGU is the acknowledged leader in cyber security research in Israel, bolstered by key partnerships with Deutsche Telekom (DT) and by collaboration with many high-tech companies and Israeli and American government agencies. At BGU’s DT laboratories and Cyber Security Research Center, some 100 researchers and students are identifying attacks on data; detecting insider threats by individuals who knowingly or otherwise abuse their company access; combating malware; developing tools for collecting intelligence from social networks; and protecting mobile devices and the cellular infrastructure.
BGU is becoming one of the world’s most important cyber security centers. Help establish cyber issue-specific laboratories.
