Description

As part of a new public outreach initiative, the Helsinki-Aalto Center for Information Security invites you to the first in a series of public lectures (studia generalia):

Speaker: Yves Vandermeer, Chair of the European Cybercrime Training and Education Group.

Lecture description: Cybersecurity is a trending topic nowadays, but what about Cyber crime, Dark markets, and Crypto currencies? Who are the cyber criminals, how are they organised, what tools do they use, and how do they choose their victims? Are we all targeted or are some of us more vulnerable? And finally, what is being done by law enforcement?

This lecture is open to everyone. It is intended for a broad audience and does not require any background in information security. The lecture will be approximately 45 minutes, after which there will be time for questions.

About the speaker: Yves Vandermeer holds an MSc in Computer Forensics, and has 20 years experience in law enforcement as a computer crime and computer forensics practitioner. Since 2017, he has been working for the Norwegian Police University College where he carries out research on file systems forensics, live data and network forensics. His focus is on delivering knowledge and tools to law enforcement practitioners and improving computer crime fighting and computer forensics handling. As chairman of the European Cybercrime Training and Education Group, Yves promotes cooperation between Academic and LEA worlds, bringing topic experts together to raise expertise and address identified cyber training needs.
