NeCS Project participated in the international Science Festival held in Genoa from the 25th of October to the 4th of November 2018 with the exposition "Cyber Security? We'll take care of it!".
ESR3 Davide Ferraris and ESR9 Fabio Giubilo prepared and explained the exposition to hundreds of visitors. The visitors were families and high school students and teachers. During the expositions, ESRs and Science Festival staff disseminated knowledge on Cyber Security hot topics as Privacy, Trust, Ethical Hacking, Social Engineering and Internet of Things.
The Genoa Science Festival is an annual event which, since the first edition in 2003, represents a national arena where the most outstanding scientists and researchers from Italy and abroad present and discuss their latest advancements. This event is also a unique occasion for public of all ages to “experience” science through several interactive laboratories and “hands on” exhibits. Today the Science Festival is recognised as one of the most important events of science communication at a European level counting over 200.000 visits each year.
The Cybersecurity day is an annual event organized by the cybersecurity lab of IIT-CNR. This edition attracted more than 200 participants from research, industry, government and civil society. More than 20 speakers discussed about innovation in cyber security and its many facets, including information sharing, cyber threat management and automotive security.
All NeCS students attended the meeting.
The course aims at providing participants with a complete set of tools to properly managing complex international projects, with particular reference to the research fields.
A first part of the project will be dedicated to project management techniques and procedures to be implemented for a smooth running of projects. A second part will be dedicated to financial reporting rules on eligibility of expenditures, mainly in relation to the EU Horizon 2020 Programme. Finally, the last part will focus on IPR discipline and knowledge transfer in the frame of funded projects.
The speakers and their topics are:
Daniel Bastos: "Cloud Frameworks for the Internet of Things"
Sandeep Gupta: "DIALERAUTH: A Motion-Assisted Touch-Based Smartphone User Authentication Scheme"
The fascinating journey in the world of research with BRIGHT 2017, the European Researchers' Night event in Tuscany, was back on Friday, September 28th. Also this year the great festival dedicated to research brought its protagonists in the streets and squares of the historic center of all the cities involved, and opened the doors of the laboratories to citizens who can talk with researchers, appreciate their expertise and passion and know the positive impact that the results of their work have on quality of life.
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.
"Optimal security configuration for cyber insurance";
"Dynamic cyber insurance framework"
The International School on Foundations of Security Analysis and Design FOSAD is a one-week yearly school on cyber-security held in Bertinoro (Italy) in August-September. The main aim of the FOSAD school is to offer a good spectrum of current research in foundations of security - ranging from programming languages to analysis of protocols, from cryptographic algorithms to access control policies and trust management - that can be of help for graduate students and young researchers from academia or industry that intend to approach the field.
Around 200 MSCA fellows got together on 7 and 8 July 2018 for an Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Satellite Event ahead of the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) 2018 in Toulouse, France.
ESRs Fabio Giubilo (ESR9) and Daniel Bastos (ESR11) from British Telecom attended the event and represented the NeCS project by engaging with other MSCA students and sharing their experience.
In addition to the networking activities, the event also included a visit to the Airbus facilities and museum in Toulouse.
