Project Title

The Economic impact of Security and Privacy by Design


Golriz Chehrazi, Technische Universitat Darmstadt

Project Abstract

The research will be part of a phd-thesis at the Technische Universitat Darmstadt about the economic impact of security and privacy by design. I would like to measure the cost and effort of IT security and implementations in different phases of system development and their impact on the developed system. I would like prove that the earlier IT security aspects are considered in the software development project, the less security problems will appear in practice, the easier it is to solve security problems during employment, the more software is used, because security is getting to be an increasingly important issue, etc. I would like to find out if security is handled differently in open source projects compared with industrial projects.
