It was in 2012 that the research group founded by Professor Solange Ghernaouti of the University of Lausanne took the name “Swiss Cybersecurity Advisory and Research Group (SCARG)”. It replaces the one she had created around twenty years earlier (Security in Digital Environment (SedGe)). The evolution of this structure reflects that of the research and teaching activities carried out by Solange Ghernaouti within the HEC faculty of the University of Lausanne.

SCARG makes it possible to bring together people and projects around transdisciplinary issues of security in the digital age.

SCARG contributes to the development of the capacities of institutions and people for everything relating to the management of IT and information risks. It addresses in particular strategic and operational questions of cyber security, the fight against cybercrime, cyber defense and cyber power.
