COSEMA (Collaborative Security Management) is a research project which is funded by the Tyrolean Future Foundation (Tiroler Zukunftstiftung) as part of the „Translational Research“-Program. The project is an inter-faculty cooperation between the Research Group Quality Engineering of the Insitute of Computer Science and the team Information Systems I of the Department of Information Systems, Production and Logistics Management.


Goals of the project are the development of a framework and of concepts for a collaborative Information Security Management System (ISMS) in organisations. By Collaborative Security Management we understand the stronger integration of various stakeholders and organizational units such as work groups, departments or projects into the process of security management and the delegation of responsibilities to them.
