Target Audience

The "Austria IT Security Hub" is a platform for intensive cooperation between a wide range of companies and individuals in the cyber security environment. At the same time, general IT security awareness is to be intensified at an early age and talents promoted through our platform. These stakeholders include: Industry & Economics Initial and continuing education Research, development and innovation Interest groups of all kinds Politics, administration and public The central anchor point is located in St. Pölten and it is cooperating with stakeholders throughout Austria to establish itself as a center of excellence in the heart of Europe.


The IT Security Hub Austria develops and supports sustainable excellence programs and the development of corresponding basic programs. The Hub
encourage considerations on organization and infrastructure for the promotion of Austrian young talent in the field of cyber security as well as on the implementation of sustainable, national cybersecurity & digitization - qualification models
As the head of the IT Security Hub in Austria, we are convinced of the idea of picking up young people at an early age and promoting them in a certain Center of Excellence Program – (which does not yet exist in this cybersecurity area).
A comparable situation exists since decades in the alpin skiing sport. Thanks to unique young talent promotion models, Austria can assert itself as a small country in the international top sports field. A similar positioning is also to be developed by the Austria Securiy Hub in the increasingly relevant cyber-security environment.
The Austria CyberSecurity Challenge has been holding a top competition for CyberSecurityTalents for many years, but there is a lack of sustainable infrastructures to develop this excellence in a targeted manner and to leave its origins to chance. This requires Institutionalized framework conditions and consequently also basic programs to develop a stable breadth for a talented top.
The aim of the Austria Security Hub is to set up these sustainable structures in order to implement the development of cybersecurity awareness at a broad national level, as well as basic and excellence programs in the field of education and training based thereon.
The development of corresponding "security" base programs will not work without corresponding development of "digital skills" in broad sections of society as well as these should be striven for hand in hand in the education sector.
