Birgitta Landelius has a bachelor's degree in systems science with a focus on IT, human and organisation. For the final year project, she conducted a study about the Swedish police and investigated whether their surveillance violates privacy of individuals. During this time, her interest in privacy-related issues grew and led to enrolling in a master’s program at the University of Skövde. The master’s program focused on privacy, information security and cybersecurity. With the previously gained insight into the Swedish public sector, she aimed at continuing this path for her master's thesis where she chose to focus on the evaluation and follow-up of information security within Swedish government agencies. In the autumn of 2023, the work was awarded the best thesis by ISACA Sweden.
