Current Courses

IT Security Laboratory (VIHIMB01)

This laboratory extends and deepens the knowledge and skills obtained in the courses of the IT Security minor specialization by solving practical, hands-on exercises in real, or close-to-real environments.

Privacy-Preserving Technologies (VIHIAV35)

The sharing and explotation of the ever-growing data about individuals raise serious privacy concerns these days. Is it possible to derive (socially or individually) useful information about people from this Big Data without revealing personal information?
This course provides a detailed overview of data privacy. It focuses on different privacy problems of web tracking, data sharing, and machine learning, as well as their mitigation techniques. The aim is to give the essential (technical) background knowledge needed to identify and protect personal data. These skills are becoming a must of every data/software engineer and data protection officer dealing with personal and sensitive data, and are also required by the upcoming European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
