The European Cyber Security Challenge leverages on competitions from Member States and it adds a pan-European layer to them: Top cyber talents from each MS collaborate and compete against each to win the ECSC prize. Contestants solve security related challenges from domains such as web security, mobile security, crypto puzzles, reverse engineering and forensics and collect points for solving them.
During the conference there will be a NeCS closed session, on November 1st, where each ESR is going to present the status of his research.
The ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS) is the flagship annual conference of the Special Interest Group on Security, Audit and Control (SIGSAC) of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). The conference brings together information security researchers, practitioners, developers, and users from all over the world to explore cutting-edge ideas and results. It provides an environment to conduct intellectual discussions. From its inception, CCS has established itself as a high-standard research conference in its area.
Nations, corporations, and individuals constantly need to reason about how to protect their sensitive assets in order to ensure economic growth and prosperity. Decision making for security and privacy of infrastructure and information needs a scientific framework that can handle challenges arising from modern-day heterogeneous, dynamic, and large-scale systems.
ESR14 Athanasios Rizos - CNR
The next Webex seminar will take place on Wednesday the 4th of October at 15:00 (CET).
The speaker will be Athanasios Rizos (CNR) and the title of the talk will be "Introducing Usage Control in MQTT”.
The researcher’s Night is a Europe-wide public event dedicated to science and learning. It takes place each year on the last Friday of September. Around 30 countries and over 300 cities are involved.
All the events are supported by the European Commission as a part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions, funded under the Horizon 2020 programme, to boost the careers of researchers.
The event aims to emphasize the figure of the researcher in society. The scientists will share with visitors their hobbies and their work, so that citizens can meet, for example, a doctor writing poems, enjoy music with performances by a group of scientists or participate in a historical-scientific tourist route. ESRs will present their work in order to increase its impact in society and present in an easier way how the advances of cybersecurity could contribute to an advance to people and the benefits it brings.
NeCS is currently recruiting 1 ESR: Early Stage Researcher for its activity.
The ESR positions is offered in Spain at Atos
BT Innovation Week 2017 was held in Adastral Park, in Ipswich, UK during 12 and 13 of June of 2017.
This event is focused on current technology challenges including cybersecurity.
The NeCS researcher Fabio Giubilo assisted to the conference and had the opportunity to present a demo about his research related to the topic Security and IoT.
The International Conference on Risks and Security of Internet and Systems 2017 will be the 12th in a series dedicated to security issues in Internet-related applications, networks and systems. Internet has become essential for the exchange of information between user groups and organizations from different backgrounds and with different needs and objectives. These users are exposed to increasing risks regarding security and privacy, due to the development of more and more sophisticated online attacks, the growth of Cyber Crime, etc.
