  • Faris Bourdoud

Student thesis: Master typesMaster in Computer science


The information systems, the technologies, the laws on data privacy and data protection are continuously evolving. It becomes more and more complex to analyse and describe a system, and its relationship with others. Because of that, preventing all attacks and detecting the risks is becoming a very difficult task. Hopefully the methodologies to help in this field evolve too, new approaches are created every year. Unfortunately, this constant evolution makes it difficult to choose the correct tool, methodology, framework to ensure the risk management on a project or on an organisation level. This thesis intends to offer to the reader a first step and guidance in his choice regarding the context.
