A European Industrial Doctorate on Security and Trust of Next Generation Enterprise Information Systems

Objective

"This proposal is for a European Industrial Doctorate on SECurity and Trust of Next Generation ENTerprise Information Systems (SECENTIS). In the near future, the security needs of enterprises and organizations will increase and be more varied, ranging from the protection of own resources to those managed on behalf of end-users and customers. These desiderata will be particularly important for vendors of Enterprise Information Systems and Process Management solutions because of the increasing demands for (a) control on business data processed by a large number of diverse applications and (b) overall security of data and services outsourced to third-party providers. The main goal of the SECENTIS project is to provide an innovative training program at the Doctoral level to educate a new generation of security experts capable to tackle the scientific and technical challenges raised by the combination of new technologies (e.g., cloud computing, mobile applications, and the Software-as-a-Service paradigm) and to manage the impact of these changes in industry. The SECENTIS training program stems from a carefully selected set of research activities aiming at devising cutting-edge solutions that will improve the security of the next generation of Enterprise Information Systems and Process Management solutions. The consortium of the SECENTIS Project includes SAP, the world's leading provider of e-business software solutions, and FBK that, together with the associate partners (the University of Trento and Trento-RISE), constitute one of the most lively research and innovation ecosystems in Europe."
