How the research and education sector is targeted by cyber criminals

In Geneva we live within a stone’s throw of one of the largest scientific laboratories in the world - researchers at CERN generate and analyse petabytes of data that is ultimately released into the public domain of fundamental research. Surely we’re not the subject of online attacks?! This talk will focus on why and how the research and education sector is targeted by cyber criminals - and, most importantly, what we do to protect our experiments, data and researchers!

Hannah Short obtained a Masters Degree in Physics, specialising in Astrophysics, at Imperial College London (UK) and the Universidad de La Laguna (Spain) before moving into Software Development and Computer Engineering. She has worked in both commercial and research organisations to define and implement their IT services. Hannah is currently based at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) where she contributes to various projects in Trust, Identity and Security for Research Collaborations.


As always, we'll meet at the SDG Solution Space, which is located on the ground floor of Campus Biotech Innovation Park. It's not the main Campus Biotech building! Make sure you know the address: Avenue de Sécheron 15. You need a badge to enter the building, so we'll let you in.
