About Us

Why were we established?

The explosive growth of computer systems and technological advancement has attracted an all-time high number of cyber criminals with various intentions, ranging from stealing personal and confidential information and intercepting private communications without authorization to attacks against businesses and nations.

Reports from different credible organizations estimate that crimes in cyberspace are costing the global economy billions of euros and thousands of jobs being lost each year. The cost of these two and the threat that cyber-attacks and other malicious cyber activities impose on the politically fragile, conflict-prone, and developing
countries of the Balkans is eminent and requires action from all actors.

Sense Organization

Sense Cyber Research Center is a Non-Governmental Organization based in Prishtina established in February 2019. With an enthusiastic team that is dedicated to working with governmental and private entities, Sense continues to organize and engage in a wide range of activities to foster safer and more secure cyberspace.

Our Mission

Sense’s mission is to identify and address existing challenges in the field of Cyber Security and Data Protection while paying a special focus to the domain of the regulatory and legal framework.

Organizational Background

The organization is comprised of recent graduates from different universities in Prishtina, Kosovo. Sense members’ educational background covers a range of topics such as Law, Information Technology (IT), Security, and Public Policy studies from the following institutions: University of Prishtina, RIT Kosovo (AUK), and ISPE, thus, forming a diverse, wide-spectrum expertise and an accomplished working team.


  • Conduct research studies
  • Engage in campaigns to raise citizen awareness
  • Monitor the development progress in this field
  • Participate in the public policy cycle representing civil society
  • Collaborate with public and private institutions
  • Organize conferences, workshops, trainings
  • Conduct projects that provide technical solutions

Just as with other spheres of political and social engagement, parallel to having established the governmental and legislative institutions in Kosovo that deal with cyberspace, there is the need for research institutions from civil society in the field of cybersecurity. Currently, there are a great number of successful research organizations or think tanks in Kosovo that have demonstrated their role and impact on the political, social, and academic spheres. However, these think tanks are mostly concerned with the fields such as politics, law, democracy, and economics, while cybersecurity was not represented by any NGO. Hence, Sense was established as the first Kosovan NGO to address the matters of cybersecurity.
