The GSyA group’s research is focused on secure software engineering and security management. More specifically, the group researches how to construct and use more secure software, for which it develops software engineering processes and methods, new modelling techniques and tools that provide the construction of more secure software with automated support, whilst tackling all the stages in the software development process and considering the most up-to-date/best development paradigms and technologies. The group also works on the development of methodologies and techniques with which to measure and manage the security of information technologies in companies in a systematic and predictable manner, by developing new security maturity models and information security management and auditing systems that are particularly focused on small and medium-sized enterprises, whilst respecting the principal international ICT security standards.
