He is one of the first European scholars to get involved in the system security field, the founder of the discipline in Italy and among the few Italian researchers who can exhibit in its academic vitae more  than 100 publications in international journals and conferences in the cybersecurity sector.

His current research interests are: operating systems security; formal analysis of security protocols (both in the IT and OT areas);  analysis, evaluation and emulation of trustworthy systems; malware analysis; side-channel attacks; social impacts of the digital revolution.

As shown in the Public Engagement section alongside his academic activity Danilo Bruschi has also been involved in many activities aimed at spreading cybersecurity culture, knowledge and transferring research results outside the academic community in order to contribute to social and cultural growth.
