Supported by the Japanese entrepreneur Dr. Hiroshi Fujiwara and the Israel National Cyber Bureau in the Prime Minister’s Office, the Technion Hiroshi Fujiwara Cyber Security Research Center was inaugurated in April 2016 and aims to become a top leading cyber security research facility that will contribute greatly to the field.

Today, Israel and the Technion in particular are leaders in maintaining the country’s ability to withstand cyber threats. Yet to continue to do this we must promote interdisciplinary research that relies on the capabilities of the Technion.

At the center, faculty members from various faculties explore the weaknesses that endanger computerized systems and propose methods of protection. The center fosters awareness of these issues and holds seminars for engineers working in cyber security in order to broaden their knowledge and keep them abreast of the latest developments in the field. The center collaborates with many Israeli and international industries and is working to expand these collaborations. We invite industry collaboration and will be happy to host researchers and post-doctorate fellows from Israel and abroad.

The center focuses on cyber security research such as software and hardware protection, operating systems security, cloud security, protection of IoT (Internet of Things) systems, verification of software and hardware, computer vision, security of autonomous systems, cryptology and cryptanalysis, security and privacy of medical and aeronautical systems, and many others. The center manages research grants for researchers and graduate students (MSc and PhD), serves as a focal point for scholars, focuses on disseminating innovative knowledge through conferences and international workshops, and deepen awareness of the field via courses, lectures and other outreach activities.
