Its wide range of skills and highly pragmatic approach enable applications in a number of sectors (medical technology, IT networks, Internet of Things, fintech, police and armed forces):

[ Information Security, Computer Security (secure architecture, threat analysis, risk management)
[ Applied cryptography (software, embedded, system, network) and post-quantum cryptography
[ Network and Telecommunications Security
[ Software and Web Security (secure development, code review, malware analysis)
[ Intrusion testing (web, system, network)
[ Reverse Engineering

Unil sciences criminelles

The School of Criminal Sciences (ESC) of the University of Lausanne (UNIL) has a unique expertise in the field of computer crime and digital traces. But UNIL also has strong skills in law and economics, particularly in the digital context.

The ESC maintains close relations with civil society, in particular with the police and judicial authorities. It does so through mandates, expert opinions and continuous training.

Its specific areas of expertise are:

[ Computer Crime and Fraud Analysis
[ Digital Forensics and Investigation
[ E-Government, e-Administration and Digital Identity
